On behalf of Ralph Golik, Tesha's amazing buyer, we are donating $833 to the Watershed Alliance of SW Washington!
The Watershed Alliance of SW Washington is a Clark County based nonprofit that promotes the education of our community about clean water, and works to protect and improve the quality of our watersheds and water resources including creeks and rivers. Some ways they do this is by managing invasive species, planting trees, and operating other vital stewardship projects.
Mr. Golik is very proud of the work this program is doing, and of his daughter who serves on the board for the Watershed Alliance of SW Washington, so he selected this nonprofit to help further their good work and community outreach. Thank you Ralph for providing us with the opportunity to support this great organization!
About the Watershed Alliance of SW Washington.
"Vancouver Watersheds Alliance was incorporated in April 2008 as a nonprofit with 501(c)(3) status. In 2010, the organization became completely independent of the City and now works on a contract basis to perform specific tasks including community outreach, environmental restoration, promoting volunteerism and care for our water resources. The Watershed Alliance also works independently with other community organizations to accomplish its mission. In 2017, we changed our name to the Watershed Alliance of SW Washington to better reflect our expanding efforts and new partnerships." (thewatershedalliance.org/about)
The Watershed Alliance of SW Washington is a grant-funded organization with a staff of four hardworking individuals. They frequently work with volunteers for their invasive plant removal and tree planting projects, and have a lot of great programs that could benefit homeowners as well. If you own land along a creek please visit their Project Restore page to learn more about what you can do to support our watersheds and local environment. This outreach can include a low-cost walk and talk at your home to learn what to plant and what to remove to create a backyard habitat that supports the bee population and overall environmental health!
"Watershed Alliance works to educate and engage community members to be active stewards of SW Washington natural legacy, with a focus on creeks, lakes, and other water bodies. We educate children and adults, while giving them hands on opportunities to participate in the restoration and protection of waterways." (thewatershedalliance.org/about)
