I feel very fortunate to live a couple of blocks away from Nose Creek where our family has watched beavers, herons, hawks, foxes, mallard ducks, muskrats, Canada geese, coyotes, along with a variety of other birds and insects. We have also had the pleasure of watching the wildflowers bloom throughout the changing seasons and learning of their importance to man and nature.
Unfortunately the Nose Creek Watershed has come under increasing pressure over the past few years as a variety of activities such as agriculture and urban development in surrounding areas have become more intense. The need to work together is essential for the long-term protection and enhancement of the watershed, and thankfully the Nose Creek Watershed Partnership believes that taking responsible action today will help prevent serious problems in the future.
I hope to see all creeks and wetlands in this area protected so that future generations may enjoy it as we have.
