Wade-King students look closely at aquatic insects (an important food source for young salmon) they caught in Padden Creek to better understand the relationship between water quality and stream biodiversity.

NSEA removes invasive grass by hand and with machines exposing the Kendall Creek. Native plants are installed along the streambank while logs are added to provide good habitat for young salmon and add complexity to the system as a whole.

Native vegetation planted by NSEA explodes to provide the first bit of shade in decades to a creek that now is easily navigable by both spawning adult salmon and young salmon headed back tot he Nooksack River and out toward Bellingham Bay and beyond.
