Ten local residents learned about ways to preserve and protect the Bear Creek Watershed in a course offered by the Evergreen Metro District and the watershed association.
The class, at the Evergreen Metro District facility on Stagecoach Drive, covered a variety of topics, including hydrology of Bear Creek, pollution, wildlife impacts and potential citizen monitoring.
In the past, Evergreen High students took the class and then embarked on a beautification project at the school.
