Celebrate Earth Day with watershed walk at McCormick Park

In honor of Earth Day, the city of Duvall is hosting a Walk Your Watershed event, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at McCormick Park. Take an enjoyable mile-long walk, starting and ending in the parking lot of McCormick Park, and learn about watershed features along the Snoqualmie River.

Along the walk, participants can visit stations on salmon habitat, shoreline geology, native and invasive plants, low-impact development (LID), water conservation and  the ecology of a beaver dam. There will also be information from Waste Management on recycling and, in the same spirit of improving the health and safety of the community, a drug collection station for disposing of unwanted medications, staffed by the Duvall Police Department.

The entire event is free, and includes a drawing for a free rain barrel. Interested visitors can also take home free tree seedlings for planting.

Event sponsors include King County, Waste Management, Earthright Insight, GeoEngineers, Sound Salmon Solutions, the cities of Seattle, Monroe and Duvall, and the Duvall Police Department.
