Newsletters are distributed to provide landowners with information about activities taking place in the watershed, upcoming events, conservation practices, cost-share opportunities and other important topics. Project signs have been posted at various sites to promote the conservation practices that landowners have voluntarily implemented. Tours are conducted to showcase conservation activities implemented in the watershed.
Education programs provide students with an understanding of a broad range of environmental concerns through hands-on learning opportunities that encourage sustainability of natural resources and watershed enhancement and protection. Envirothon is a competition for high school-aged students, which requires them to demonstrate knowledge of environmental science and natural resource management. The teams use problem-solving skills to complete tests in five categories: soils/land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife, and a current environmental issue. The Salmon in the Classroom project provides salmon education to Asotin County students. Four classrooms raise live Rainbow Trout in rearing tanks and then release the trout in approved ponds in late May or early June. Students learn about the salmon life cycle, habitat, water quality, and how and why it is important to protect the environment. The District provides a workshop at the 4-H Youth Camp on water quality. Students learn about the importance of water quality for fish, wildlife, and humans. Each student receives a Beta kit to take home.
