Influence of the Confluence: Communities Coming Together

Saturday, June 11th 2016 from 2 to 6PM

at Meadowbrook Pond,

across from Meadowbrook Community Center

10517 35th Ave NE

 

Thornton Creek Alliance and Adopt A Stream Foundation are hosting a free family-friendly event in cooperation with Seattle Public Utilities and Seattle Parks & Recreation to celebrate the completion of two floodplain restoration/reconnection projects on Thornton Creek, the largest watershed in both Seattle and Shoreline.

 The event will include outdoor festivities with live music featuring the ThorNton Creek Band, information booths, children’s activities and tours of the Thornton Confluence and Kingfisher project sites (see map below). 

This is a community networking event intended for Thornton Creek watershed residents, creek-side property owners, students, stream professionals, stream enthusiasts, and anyone else who wants to celebrate this watershed.

Influence of the Confluence provides an opportunity to bring together people living in, working on, and studying urban creeks to partner on watershed restoration and protection. The event will help to:

  • Connect stream enthusiasts, volunteers, professionals and property owners to build partnerships to improve urban watersheds.
  • Bring together citizens and stream professionals; particularly non-profit groups that can help property owners tackle creek projects with project management to acquire grant funds, permits and professional services for design & construction.  
  • Celebrate the completion of the Thornton Floodplain projects and their recent transfer to public ownership.
  • Provide an overview of Seattle urban watershed projects, activities, resources and opportunities for volunteers, students, residents and stream professionals.
