Wetland Wednesday with Janet Stein
Whidbey Watershed Stewards hosted another successful Wetland Wednesday at the Freeland Wetland Preserve on August 19th, from 1-3pm. 
Our featured speaker was Janet Stein, Noxious Weed Coordinator for Island County. Her talk, Island Flora: Beauties and Beasts, was followed by an informative hike through the Preserve. 
Here are a few photos (courtesy of Rick Baker) of our great event. Thanks so much to Janet Stein, and to all those who came out to participate!
