This fall kicks off North Sound TU's first ever work party collaboration with the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association. NSEA has gracefully allowed our chapter to setup a booth alongside their own at 13 of their work parties from now through Spring 2019, and we will be assisting anyone interested in macroinvertebrate collection and identification.
If you'd like some free breakfast, to put in some sweat equity by way of direct conservation efforts, and to nerd out wading in local waters and collecting bugs, find us at any of these upcoming events!
Find the calendar of upcoming work parties here. We'll be there, and we would love to have some fellow NSTU representation along for the dig.

The Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association is a must see for anyone living in or visiting Whatcom County. I love that they are restoring salmon habitat. I admire that they provide adequate habitat for salmon and other wildlife and contributes to consistent stream flows throughout the year. Education is also important in these kinds of programs, people need to learn the importance of taking care of the community and the habitation of these creatures. Kudos to Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association and North Sound TU for this awesome collaboration!

Salmon are a critical part of our ecosystem here in Whatcom County. New bridges, potted up trees, and instructive marks in front of our creeks and streams are all proof that the public is taking action to safeguard them. One perfectly named group managing numerous such preserved projects is NSEA: Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association, a community-based nonprofit. The Nooksack Watershed consists of Whatcom County’s rivers, creeks, and tributaries streaming through British Columbia, Skagit County, the North Cascades, and the Salish Sea. NSEA’s Fourth Grade Students for Salmon program educates the children across Whatcom County school districts about Pacific Northwest ecology through the glass of a salmon. The program provides classroom teachings, a field tour where students analyze science stations and rebuild habitat, and a classroom visit to inspect the students’ learning.
