Do you care about your watershed? The South Fork Watershed Education Committee is a group of diverse, committed neighbors who are hosting educational forums for our community. The mission of the Committee is, “to educate ourselves and our community concerning watershed topics for the South Fork of the Nooksack River in order to increase self-determination related to current and future water quality and use issues.”
Please send an email if you would like to attend a Committee meeting, or receive notifications for upcoming Education Forums. Childcare is provided, along with tea, coffee, and many kinds of delicious pie!
The Watershed Group
In January of 2017, the Nooksack Tribe convened a South Fork Nooksack Watershed Group to create a framework for discussing community values and long-range goals. Participation in the group was open to any resident or landowner of the South Fork Nooksack Watershed willing to participate in good faith to find win-win solutions. Over forty community members and agency representatives participated. The Watershed Group met five times between January and March 2017, and a final time (independently as planned, to establish full community leadership) in September of 2017. At that last meeting, the South Fork Watershed Education Committee was formed to take the work forward.
