Sac-Sierra Chapter Trout Unlimited members Barbara Bania and Don and Nancy Krueger participated in the kick-off event held at the Folsom Hills Elementary school. The kick-off recognized and thanked current organizations and clubs that have adopted a section of a creek or trail to be monitored and maintained in Folsom. Each participating volunteer group was asked to give a short speech about the section of creek and/or trail. Nancy Krueger spoke for SSTU. New volunteers were also recognized and welcomed.
Our chapter presented a display board show casing our section of Willow Creek with pictures of the creek and surrounding area. We also had giveaways from the Department of Fish and Game provided by Jeff Weaver, information about our Chapter with new member applications and brochures, a Klean Kanteen (they are popular)! A sample of Himalaya blackberry and Yellow Star Thistle was on display along with informational sheets for the public to take.
Other groups and organizations were represented by The City of Folsom, Friends of the Folsom Parkway, Creek Week organizers, the Audubon Society, CA Parks and Recreation, Folsom Lake College Eco Club, and the Boy and Girl scouts, Cub scouts and the Daisies. They were the enthusiastic ones and enjoyed our table! Plus, there were plenty of goodies to eat!
