Creston Grade 8 science students plant and clean up with Wildsight

Web Lead

Prince Charles Secondary School Grade 8 students have been part of Wildsight's 'Know Your Watershed' program.

Students in Allison Kepke’s Grade 8 Prince Charles Secondary School science class planted native plants on June 9 at the intersection of the Klaus Korner and Steve’s Ride trails.

The activity was part Know Your Watershed, a Columbia Basin Trust program administered and managed by Wildsight that helps students increase their knowledge and awareness of the local watershed and water-related issues. The students took on the project in order to repair land with a history of weeds and industrial use from the former mill, and to capture more surface runoff from the surrounding built environments. The afternoon also had students cleaning up garbage from the banks of Dodd Creek, which runs alongside Steve’s Ride, just west of the dog park.

The replanting and clean-up was done in collaboration with the Town of Creston and the Trails for Creston Valley Society.
