SEATTLE - Students from four Seattle public elementary schools will visit watersheds in the next few weeks and through the school year as part of a yearlong Urban Watershed Challenge Program.
With help from the Everett-based Adopt-A-Stream Foundation, the students will learn about the origins and ends of their adopted streams and about watershed issues.
In subsequent trips, the students will monitor water quality, map habitat features and do projects to help their stream.
The program is offered free to schools through the Puget Sound Water Quality Authority.
The four elementary schools, their streams and initial trip dates are Martin Luther King, Jr., Arboretum Stream, Washington Park Arboretum, tomorrow; Wing Luke, Dead Horse Creek, Skyway Park and Deadhorse Canyon, Wednesday; T.T. Minor, Arboretum Stream, Washington Park Arboretum, Oct. 28; and Latona, Ravenna Creek at Green Lake, Ravenna Park and Union Bay, date to be set.
