Did you know?

Priest Lake tributaries are not meeting Federal Clean Water Act Cool Temperature standards?

Warm stream water adversely impacts fish spawning, oxygen levels and increases aquatic vegetation growth like toxic cyanobacteria.

Logging increases nutrient loading and decreases solar shading, both increase stream temperatures.

Even with the above listed concerns, Priest Lake Watershed streams have not been consistently monitored... Until now!

SCA has started a stream monitoring program collecting water quality data on 15 of Priest Lake tributary streams!

Cutthroat Trout Level

$250 purchases a "Tidbit" which continuously monitors stream temperatures every 15 minutes for 2 years!

Bull Trout Level

$500 purchases the Tidbit temperature monitor, repeated annual chemistry testing as well as stream habitat and physical assessments. It also provides funding to help with education for water steward certifications to insure the success of the program!

What you receive for your donation!
