Our water quality sampling, Water Quality Databank, and water use planning acknowledge the core importance of water and watershed well being. Furthermore, they enliven the ecological health and function of our watersheds by addressing legacy mining (Nelson Tunnel/Commodore Waste Rock Superfund Site), stream and forest restoration, best practices related to climate science, community education, and stewardship of our dark sky.
Restoration & Reclamation
We treasure both our rich mining history and the ongoing, community-led reclamation work. Through education, restoration projects and partnerships, we aim to rectify past legacy mining impacts and to improve both the health of the Willow Creek watershed and the social health of our community.
Our Night Sky
Skies with visible blankets of stars are becoming harder to find and therefore are in need of protection. The night sky, not only inspires us with it’s beauty and vastness, it also enhances certain qualities of solace that living things depend on, both naturally and culturally. Our night sky is an important player in a multi-faceted ecosystem and we aim to do our part in preserving it.
