Watershed Council request for volunteers!
The Cooper Creek Salmon Supplementation Program seeks volunteers. The Bainbridge Island Watershed Council, in partnership with the City of Bainbridge Island and the Suquamish Tribe, is starting the third year of a four-year project to bring back salmon to Cooper Creek at the head of Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island. Volunteers are needed to help prepare the site and to participate in caring for the fish during the two-month rearing program. Fish are fed three times each day, 7 days per week, and folks can sign up for
one to several shifts throughout the period. Please visit the Watershed Council website for more information about this project and how you can volunteer to help with this important program! For questions or more information, you can
also email Deb Rudnick.
Wiping Out Waste on Bainbridge!
Tired of seeing garbage and recyclables spilling out onto the sidewalks of our community? Now you can be part of a permanent solution. Here's how you can help!
Donate any amount, large or small, to the Sustainable Bainbridge Big Belly® fund. For more information, click here and help keep our downtown streets clean and green!
Winslow Way Plantings
The Winslow Way reconstruction project will begin this spring. Prior to that, there is a need to remove the plants which adorn our current streetscape. Some of these will be returned to the new street, while others will need to find new homes. There will be a work party in February to remove the current plantings. Please let us know if you are interested in assisting with this project, and we will get back to you with more information.
New Board Members
January marked the addition of three new members on the SB Board of Directors: Cathie Currie, Scott James and Barb Zimmer. You can learn more about them here. Our board has just concluded our annual retreat, and we have many ideas for future discussions and projects. Perhaps you'd like to join in some of these efforts! We hope to see you at the Feb. 7th meeting, and we'll look forward to some good conversations.
