Locals learn to battle water pollution at Olympias WET Science Center
“Why should Puget Sound residents know the definition of watershed?
Because we all live in a watershed, and we all help pollute it.
One solution to the problem is awareness. On Saturday [Feb 8], nearly two dozen people of all ages attended a ‘watersheducation’ class at the WET Science Center in Olympia. Led by AmeriCorps members April Roe and Missy Ayres, the class showed people how to minimize their impact on the health of Puget Sound.
Attendees learned that a watershed is an area of land where water drains into a stream, lake or other body of water. The Puget Sound watershed stretches from Bellingham to south of Olympia,” by Any Hobbs in The Olympian.
