WCCThe District’s WCC crew celebrates a good day of hard work at the South Prairie Creek Preserve project site in July. L to R: Kelly Lewis (supervisor), Samuel Bubenzer, Justin LeMay, Kalea Steffe, Marinn Carpenter, and Clayton Berg.

Since last October, the District has been fortunate to sponsor a Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) crew, in partnership with the City of Puyallup and Forterra. This group of five hard working young adults, plus their supervisor, have increased the District’s capacity and allowed more important restoration work to be completed. Among other projects, our WCC crew has performed critical tasks at nearly all our active planting sites doing site prep, plant installation, and maintenance. They have also done important work on the new Loop Trail in Puyallup that goes through restoration sites like Silver and Meeker Creek.
