125 Columbia St NW, Olympia
Order food by 5:30 PM for meeting at 6 PM. Learn about restoring the Deschutes River and Estuary. Go to Sierra Club South Sound site.
You will meet representatives from DERT (the Deschutes Estuary Restoration Team) and learn why they want to undo the mistakes of the past by restoring the Deschutes estuary. Yes, this is all about our man-made Capitol Lake, created in the 1950s with a dam where the Deschutes River flows into Puget Sound. It was a mistake that has altered the river, created a polluted lake that is filling up with silt and has been closed to swimming for many years for health reasons.
Learn what this group proposes and how they want to get it done!
