Seating is limited to 120, and reservations are required for the free talk.

Mark storm drains to benefit creek: The Adopt A Stream Foundation seeks volunteers to help mark storm drains with “Puget Sound Starts Here” markers near Catherine Creek, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Meet at the community park on Bryce Drive, between 35th Place NE and 125th Avenue NE in Lake Stevens.

Three-quarters of all toxins in Puget Sound come from yard, street, or developed land storm water runoff, organizers say.
