The Coquille Watershed Association is working with students from the Bandon and Coquille High Schools on the "Going Native" project and the group is having a public meeting on February 22, to display their work.
Since these are students and young minds, it is important that there is a balance of people with differing ideologies in attendance to make sure that extreme environmentalism is not taught to the children. The CWA have a few members on their Board that put the needs of plants above the needs of the people, so people need to be aware of who is doing the teaching in these school programs. Please, come out to this event and enjoy the day, because there is a need to have a good balance in the environment....Rob T.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Public Event – The Coquille Watershed Association, Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, Oregon Stewardship and Coquille Booster Club have planned a tree-planting party for Saturday, February 22, in Coquille at the soccer and football practice sports fields along Cunningham Creek. Students, volunteers and local contractors have been clearing invasive weeds and planting native species along the creek and will wrap up the project from 9am-12 noon. The public is welcome to come by and learn about the student’s work, grab a shovel and enjoy a hot dog as we help to restore the creek that runs through the school’s fish hatchery.
The Coquille Watershed Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring salmon habitat and is working on this project under funding provided by OWEB’s Small Grant Program, an easy-to-engage-in, competitive grant program that awards funds of up to $10,000 for on-the-ground restoration projects to landowners funded by Oregon Lottery dollars. For more information on either the CWA or OWEB, please see www.coquillewatershed.org and www.oregon.gov/OWEB. Oregon Stewardship is a non-profit membership organization that works with students in five counties of SW Oregon, and students do hands-on projects like the riparian restoration of Cunningham Creek.
