Looking for Ways to Give Back to Birch Bay? We Need Your Help!
Do you live in the Birch Bay or Terrell Creek Watersheds? If so, we would love to hear from you! Our beautiful bay and local waterways are home to a wide array of species that all rely on a clean and abundant water supply. Natural resource protection cannot happen without an engaged and proactive community.
In an effort to better serve the interests of the community and the environmental needs, we have developed this short, 5 minute survey and we would your appreciate feedback. Your responses will remain confidential, and the information gathered will allow BBWARM to provide more opportunities for individuals to get involved in local environmental stewardship. Start the survey now, by clicking here!
Do you know someone who would like to have their voice heard, but aren't tech-savvy? We have paper copies of the survey available at the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce. For more information about our program, please visit the BBWARM website.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your thoughts!
