The City of Sequim Stormwater Stewardship Project and the Sequim High School “Be the Change” club are launching the Bell Creek Discovery Tour on Earth Day, April 22 to raise awareness of local Bell Creek. The walking or driving tour includes 10 educational stops from the headwaters to the mouth of the creek.
Participants can download an app on their smartphone from the project webpage http://wa-sequim.civicplus.com/index.aspx?NID=676 or the project Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/bellcreekdiscoverytour. The tour sheet and map and complete instructions are also available at a box installed on the outside of the City’s Interpretive Center at the Water Reuse Park, 500 N. Blake Avenue.
Participants who answer the educational questions on Facebook or on the Tour Sheet by Memorial Day, May 25, 2015 are invited on an exclusive guided walk, picnic snacks included, across Washington Harbor at the mouth of Bell Creek to Port Williams beach and will automatically be entered into a raffle for dinner for four at Nourish Restaurant, chosen for its location on Bell Creek.
“The idea for this tour came from conversations with Peggy McClure, a project volunteer who was taking a class in natural resources at the time,” said the Stormwater Stewardship project manager Ann Soule. The class was the Citizen’s Action Training School hosted by the North Olympic Salmon Coalition and was held last fall.
“Peggy is incredibly creative and computer savvy, and has been very generous with her time in helping to get this off the ground,” Soule added.
