Chehalis River: Watershed Helath, Climate Resilience, and Ecosystem Restoration – The Columbian

The Chehalis River basin in Southwest Washington is an ecological treasure that has also been an important waterway for human cultures dating back to the last Ice Age. But climate change is bringing new threats to the health of this vital watershed, as well as new opportunities for its restoration.

Chehalis River: Watershed Health, Climate Resilience, and Ecosystem Restoration is a four-part educational webinar series presented by Great Old Broads for Wilderness that takes a closer look at the history and future of the Chehalis River watershed. Participants will learn about the value of rivers, wetlands, and watersheds in southwest Washington, tribal perspectives on the Chehalis River, and the challenges and opportunities for restoration of the Chehalis watershed in a changing climate.

The first webinar, Climate Change and the Chehalis Basin, will be on Wednesday, August 12, from 7:00-8:00 pm PST, and will feature Alexa Brown, coordinator with the Grays Harbor Stream Team. Brown, who has degrees in both Environmental Policy and Environmental Science from Western Washington University, has a background in stream restoration and invasive species removal in the southwest Washington region.Brown is currently working to bring the community closer together around increasing the health and resiliency of the streams and waterways of the Chehalis basin.

The webinar is free to current Great Old Broads for Wilderness members.
