Walk begins at Waterfront Park (see map below)
Walk your watershed is back for 2015! Walk/Bike your watershed events are regularly hosted by the BI Watershed Council and are a great way to learn more about our Island's watersheds.
This year we will be exploring the North Eagle Harbor watershed. Participants are invited to start this approximately 2-mile roundtrip walk at Waterfront Park beginning at 10am or later (but don't delay too long- see below for special touring opportunities!). The walk will take you across Ravine Creek to learn about storm water and streams, up past the Ferry Terminal and down past the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant -more on that in a moment. After the treatment plant the tour will take walkers past Hawley Cove Park and along the beach to learn about our shoreline ecology, invasive plants and local geology.
Every half hour starting at 10:30 and going until 12:30, Wastewater Treatment Plant staff will be offering a special tour of the plant as part of the Walking Tour to learn all about how Bainbridge takes care of its sewage. Its a rate opportunity to get an inside look at an important component of how our City works! Participants wishing to participate in the tour must sign a waiver (available at the start of walk and at the plant) and no unaccompanied minors are allowed in the plant).
