Greg Rabourn, King County’s Vashon-Maury Island Basin Steward, organized a “Vashon Habitat Stewardship Whirlwind” event in January of this year, and recently uploaded videos of the presentations. This community program was organized to help bring the Vashon Island community up-to-date on the many conservation and restoration projects on Vashon and Maury Islands. Speakers included Susie Kalhorn of the Groundwater Protection Committee, Tom Dean of the Land Trust and Vashon Nature Center’s Bianca Perla on stream health, salmon watching and the 2012 Island Bioblitz. Greg spoke about restoration efforts at Cove Creek, Judd Creek and Raab’s Lagoon Natural Area.
Each presenter was limited to 10 minutes, allowing for a brief and wide-ranging overview of current watershed health, habitat restoration efforts, and habitat preservation and acquisition.
