Water Quality Workshops & Events

  1. Camp Murray Planting

    October 28, 2017, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Register for Exact Location

    Hardy volunteers needed to help plant trees and shrubs along Murray Creek on Camp Murray. The digging is tough – the soil is loaded with rocks, but the reward is worth it. Murray Creek is home to a run of kokanee salmon that spend their entire lives in Murray Creek and American lake, never reaching salt water. These plants will increase canopy cover and keep the kokanee stream water cool and clean.
