Glendale seminar series continues tonight

Beavers will be the focus of the second in a series of community seminars exploring geological, natural and human interactions with Glendale Creek.

The free public meeting will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 4, at Clinton Community Hall, 6411 Central Ave.

Featured speaker will be Michael Pollock of the watershed program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

A collapsed beaver dam is blamed for setting off a sequence of events in early April last year that washed away a section of Glendale Road and flooded the beach community of Glendale with water, mud and debris.

The Island County Public Works Department is conducting the series of public meetings to gather information before deciding what should be done to repair the damaged road.

A kickoff meeting Feb. 18 drew more than 60 people.

Seminars are being held on alternate Thursdays. Subsequent meetings will be March 18 and April 1 and 15.

The seminar series is in association with WSU Island County Extension and Whidbey Watershed Stewards.

For more information, call Randy Brackett, assistant county engineer, at 321-5111, ext. 7954, or e-mail
