Front Porch: Get schooled on fish habitat

The Citizen Action Training School (CATS), sponsored by Sound Salmon Solutions, is a free program in watershed and Puget Sound ecology with a focus on civic engagement, and legal and regulatory processes that affect resource management. Classes will be held on Thursday evenings in Everett beginning Oct. 2, but the registration deadline is Sept. 5.
Training consists of 50 hours of classroom work, including three Saturday field trips, culminating with students planning and implementing a 50-hour service project. CATS is open to anyone who resides in King, Island, Snohomish or Skagit counties. Organizers hope to attract a wide range of people, including teachers, marine-dependent businesses, government employees, tribal members and college students.

Walk on plastic: The public is invited to an open house Sept. 13 at the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County's McCollum Park to walk on a new elevated nature trail being built by volunteers. When completed, it will be a boardwalk of recycled plastic lumber half a mile long. Visitors also can view a 160-foot trout stream exhibit.
The open house is from 1 to 4 p.m. The Northwest Stream Center is at 600 128th St. SE.
The boardwalk is 60 percent finished and is expected to be completed in November. It runs through a complex wetland system. Plants along the route are being carefully excavated for replanting in areas where volunteers have removed large areas of invasive plants.
