Kiana's Actions

Water

Collect Rain Water

I will use rain barrels to collect water for outdoor watering needs because in summer a drop for me may be one less for salmon, which then warms streams or can impair salmon streamflows.

Eco-friendly Gardening

I will plant native species, landscape with water-efficient plants, and stop using fertilizers so my footprint in my ecosystem doesn't harm the Puget Sound and/or Pacific Ocean downstream.

Racial inequity is both a sustainability and justice problem. I will support and seek out conservation organizations lead by people of color in my community, as their efforts address environmental justice, Puget Soundand/or Pacific Ocean health.

    Hi TCD Team! 
    We are so excited that you joined our Eco Challenge Team. It is amazing to see what a collective impact a group can make. Already, as a team we have spent 165 minutes learning and prevented three plastic water bottles from being sent to the landfill! Over the next several weeks let's continue making a huge impact and being a part of orca recovery efforts in our community! #OrcaRecovery

    Welcome to Thurston Conservation Districts Eco Challenge. Thank you for joining our team! We look forward to the collective impact our team can make on our community during the month of October. We are especially looking forward to focusing our energy on the recovery efforts of our Southern Resident orca whales. This important species is in danger of extinction. It is our impact that has led to this, and it is our impact that can lead us out. Our actions can make a difference, so join us in participating in the years Eco Challenge. Together let's be a part of the solution!
