CEEEP's work carries on through summer The Columbia Estuary Environmental Education Program (CEEEP) at the Wahkiakum Community Foundation is sponsoring a group of young workers during the summer who will continue the monitoring work funded by a grant from NOAA and the Lower Columbia River Estuary Partnership. All workers are CEEEP alums, some in college and some in high school. They will be collecting data at the "Little Reserve" on Puget Island owned by the Nature Conservancy; on upper Nelson Creek, Duck Creek, and Clear Creek, all draining into the Elochoman River. They will also water trees planted by the County's Public Works Department at the Foster Road Bridge and identify/remove noxious weeds on Birnie Creek at the highway entrance into Cathlamet. Dr. Rob Stockhouse will oversee the group's work. A second group of CEEEP students will be working later in the summer at the Gorley Springs Project site in Grays River on contract with CREST. That group will include students from the Grays River Valley/ Naselle School District. CEEEP will provide a total of 16 jobs for youth over the summer months.
