Stillwaters monitors a variety of environmental variables to assess the recovery of the lower Carpenter Creek watershed for salmonids since the removal of two undersized culverts near the mouth of the creek.
The Stillwaters wetlands are part of a larger system that includes forested, freshwater, and emergent salt marsh communities. The salt marsh is part of the Apple Tree Cove Estuarine wetland system, which flows in Puget Sound. Carpenter Lake is just upstream, and we are part of the Carpenter Creek riparian zone.
Community citizens are joined by interns and graduate students from local universities in conducting field research and in monitoring and preserving the estuary, salt marsh, and the watershed. We are a volunteer-driven nonprofit that welcomes new volunteers!
