Sara's Actions

Water

5-Minute Showers

I will save up to 20 gallons (75 L) of water each day by taking 5-minute showers to minimize my water footprint, as in many watersheds, a drop for me is one less for salmon, which then warms streams or impairs salmon streamflows.

DAILY ACTIONS

Nature

Do Nature Activities

I will engage in nature-based activities alone, or with my friends or family, for 15 minute(s) each day to connect with the shared ecosystem in which I live and rely on. (This can be anything from going on a walk or hike, to noticing the leaves changing color, to reading a book with nature themes.)

DAILY ACTIONS

Nature

Support Local Pollinators

At least 30% of crops and 90% of flowering plants rely on pollinators to produce fruit. I will spend 30 minutes researching which plants support local native pollinators and plant some in my yard to improve our regional ecosystem.

Education

Contact my elected officials

I will contact my local elected officials and explain why I care about Salmon/Orcas and how investment in habitat restoration and acquisition is needed for their survival.

Share with my child(s) teacher or my neighborhood school pre-prepared curriculum resources about the plight of our Orcas and the healthy watersheds they depend on, for remote learning

  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?

    I am fortunate that I do not have many barriers to using a reusable bottle - I will do most anything to avoid purchasing a drink in a plastic bottle! The only barrier is my forgetfulness - or if refilling my water bottle isn't possible due to the pandemic/public health restrictions.
