Swamp Creek, North Creek, and Little Bear Creek flow from rapidly urbanizing southwest Snohomish County to the Sammamish River and Lake Washington. Quilceda Creek flows through the Urban Growth Area between Arlington and Marysville into the Snohomish River.

The salmon habitat in these streams is in trouble. Many culverts are too small to allow fish passage, stream banks are severely eroded and several spawning areas have been completely scoured away. Water quality in these streams has degraded to the point where they are not suitable for contact recreation for people.

To combat these problems, the Adopt-A-Stream Foundation (AASF) is offering to provide free stream surveys for landowners along these streams (Swamp, North, Little Bear, and Quilceda creeks) to explore ways of improving salmon habitat and water quality. After the survey is complete, AASF will prepare an enhancement plan and work in partnership with the landowner to find resources to fix any problem(s) discovered.

The meetings are:

• April 17, 7 p.m., at the Carol Edwards Center, 174011 Ave. N.E., Woodinville

• April 22, 7 p.m., at the NW Stream Center in Mc Collum Park, 600 128th St. S.E., Everett

• April 23, 7 p.m., at the Marysville Fire District Training Room, 1635 Grove St., Marysville.
