Want to learn how to lead Watershed Walks?
Plan to attend a Watershed Walks training event Saturday, April 7, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and you’ll learn how to lead engaging, informative walks in your community that connect residents to their environment! Meet at the Seattle Public Library Delridge Branch, at 5423 Delridge Way SW. Metro route #120 buses run by the library.
The Watershed Walks Program is designed to train Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors to educate residents about the natural ecology of the Longfellow Creek/Duwamish River Watershed. Individuals attending this event will become trained Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors. Camp Long Naturalist Jeanie Murphy-Ouellette and Feet First Volunteer Coordinator Darcy Edmunds will lead this training on how to effectively engage walking groups, what environmental threats affect our watersheds, and how individuals can reduce their impact on local ecologies.
The Watershed Walks Program provides an enjoyable way for people to learn about the relationship between their actions and a clean environment, and will provide participants an opportunity to experience their environment and community in a different, more intimate way.
For more information or to register for this free training, contact Feet First Volunteer Coordinator Darcy Edmunds by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 206-652-2310, ext. 5. Participation is limited to the first 20 people. All individuals will receive a training packet including a full color watershed map of Longfellow Creek.

The Watershed Walks Program is a collaborative effort by Feet First and Camp Long, made possible through a grant from The Mountaineers Foundation.
