Is This Where Puget Sound Starts?

BeaverThree short (4 minute) videos take the viewer on a tour of streams in Kitsap County...streams that are mainly invisible: underground or hidden by trees. Even more importantly, we see interactions between the streams, the ecosystem, and the communities they flow through.

Featured in these three movies are the South Fork of Dogfish Creek, Poulsbo Creek, Chico Creek and the headwaters atop Newberry Hill, and Olalla Creek.

Organizations that helped worked with us to film human interactions with the creeks included Martha and Mary Child Care Center, Klahowya Secondary School, Olalla Elementary, and Kitsap Parks Recreation, and Kitsap Conservation District.
