The King County Conservation District will run a farm property stream buffer showcase from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, in Carnation.

The showcase tour is sponsored by the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program, a voluntary program that compensates farmers for restoring their stream buffer to improve salmon habitat. CREP also covers planning, installation, and maintenance costs.

The tour will go through all the active program projects and the group will meet the landowners who are enrolled in CREP and are restoring their stream buffers.
