Julie Rendler in Clover Creek

Dear Clover Creek Watershed residents,

Through my time as an ENVT 350 student at PLU, I conducted multiple experiments in this watershed. Each experiment I noticed more and more trash around me. Our local Parkland Prairie was developed as public park space and has slowly become a place for garbage to collect and it harms the biodiversity there. We, as residents, need to have more care for our local watershed. I’m asking visitors of Parkland Prairie to stop littering and show more respect for our park space. I’m also asking the Pierce County Council to allocate funds in their Garbage and Recycling and their Sustainability programs for better maintenance of this area; that maintenance should include waste management and more intentional restoration efforts of native plants and creek systems.
