Water that washes from yards, streets and parking lots often flows directly into our waterways, which is detrimental to wildlife, including Threatened and Endangered salmon species. Actions we take as a community and as individuals can decrease this impact. This stormwater science talk is an opportunity to learn how we can take action together.

Have you ever asked yourself:
How does water runoff from streets, yards and parking lots connect to natural water systerms, like creeks?
Who manages this stormwater?
What impacts does stormwater have on water quality and habitat value?
What can I do about it?

If so, join us for our science talk, Rain in the Urban Jungle! We will have local water experts talking about green infrastructure like bioswales, and what we can do at home to prevent runoff into our precious streams in the Pacific Northwest.

This special Science Talk is a partnership with Water Environment Services, Johnson Creek Watershed Council, and the North Clackamas Urban Watersheds Council.

Come hungry and thirsty-our gracious hosts at Libbie's Restaurant have a full bar and yummy comfort food which you can check out HERE

Let's talk about science!

— Kids and families welcome!
