at Cascadia's Native Plant Sale.
I’m Mitch and I’ve been a regular volunteer working under AmeriCorps Intern Julia for about a year now. My father is a Project Coordinator here at the Cascadia Conservation District and I’ve volunteered at many other events, so I’m very familiar with the organization and what we do.
Since I moved from my hometown of Ellensburg I’ve really grown to appreciate the Wenatchee Valley, from the stark beauty of the shrub-steppe hills to the lushness of the banks of the mighty Columbia. Also, I just graduated high school and got a job at Target, so things look pretty good every which way.
I’m happy to pick up the blogging reigns and keep you informed on all of the comings and goings here at Cascadia. Speaking of which, the Picture the Wenatchee Photo Contest is in full swing! For contest rules and to submit photos go to www.picturethewenatchee.com, and while you’re there you can sign up for a FREE watershed care package. Winning contest photos will be featured in a 2013 calendar. Deadline for submissions is October 1st.
Also coming up are the Entiat River Appreciation on Saturday, August 4th and the Wenatchee River Cleanup on Saturday, August 21st. For more details call (509) 664-9370 and ask for Amanda.
