Water chat and ride
The Puyallup River Watershed Council will hang out at the Carbon River entrance to Mt. Rainier Nation Park Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Want to join them?

Meet at the Sumner Library (116 Fryar Ave.) at 10:30 a.m. First, you have to sit through a slide show concerning the hydrology and sediment transport of rivers presented by Paul Kennard and Susan Dolan, scientists from the Park Service.

At 11:30 a.m. you’ll hop on a bus. After a two-hour ride (you have to have snacks along the way!), you’ll pile out for short and long walks to see flood impacts from previous floods. Discussion on river hydrology and the Park’s future by Bryan Bowden, Park planner/ranger will be part of your day.

It’s back on the bus at 3:30 p.m. for return trip. If you’re not sunburned, the Puyallup River Watershed Council hosts a forum at the Sumner Library beginning at 5 p.m. on rivers management in both Pierce and King counties.
