STILLAGUAMISH OUTREACH PROGRAM

The Natural Resource Education and Outreach Program is involved in a variety of activities. Our salmon educational programs reach into schools throughout the Stillaguamish Watershed and include in-class lessons, field trips and hatchery tours. You can find more information under education. Outreach activities include the annual Stillaguamish Festival of the River and Pow Wow, Arlington Eagle Festival, Snow Goose Festival and Arlington Arbor/Earthday Celebration. We host several stewardship/restoration/research events annually, and providing workshops and lessons for a variety of groups.

Staff also meet with landowners about land-use and water quality concerns. We arrange riparian plantings and help landowners apply for various government programs to assist landowners conservation, such as CREP (Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program). When appropriate we apply for grants to compensate landowners who for various reasons cannot reap the full economic value of natural resources on their land.

Please contact Tamara Neuffer if you are interested in more information at tneuffer@stillaguamish.com.

Arlington Eagle Festival, February  2017. With winter comes the return of the eagle to the Stillaguamish River. To celebrate these special winter residents, Arlington hosts an annual Eagle Festival on the first weekend in February. We welcome you to visit and enjoy this event, which includes guided tours, art and photography show, speakers, demonstrations, live music, wagon rides, and other fun activities.

The Stillaguamish Tribe is a proud sponsor of this event, come to our booth and win prizes and learn about the important relationship between salmon and eagles. The eagles return to feed on salmon that have come to spawn in the clean river gravel. The eagle also prey on the snow geese that are feeding in the agricultural fields in the floodplain.
