Meeker Creek tree planting project

Scouts from Troop 598 helped plant trees Feb. 27 along the Meeker Creek water improvement project. As the trees grow, the shade they provide will help cool the water to increase oxygen content in the area where it has been designed to slowly meander  and deposit silt residue before it supplies Clarks Creek and eventually the Puyallup River. These changes should better support the returning salmon that use the system for spawning.
