DASSH: “Doing a Sprint for Samish Health”
5k Family Fun Run/Walk
Saturday, February 27th
10 a.m. Edison Elementary School
Join us in celebrating the Samish watershed! The Skagit Conservation Education Alliance (SCEA) and partners are hosting DASSH (“Doing a Sprint for Samish Health”), a 5k Family Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, February 27th at 10:00 a.m. The event will begin/end at Edison Elementary School and provides a beautiful scenic route for all to enjoy. The State Health Department has indicated that they will upgrade Samish Bay to approved status if we don’t have more than one closure due to fecal coliform bacteria between March 1st and June 30th (“critical rainy period”). Due to steps taken by Samish watershed residents, we have made tremendous improvements in water quality in the Samish over the last several years – we are almost there!
The event is being held on Feb. 27th to draw awareness of the upcoming “critical period” and to provide a fun opportunity to bring the community together to run/walk for a clean and healthy Samish! There will be a celebration in the school gym directly after the run – and will include geoduck chowder and activities for kids.
