The Puyallup River Watershed Council’s annual retreat is Friday in Tacoma. The public is invited to the session, which is set for 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Center for Urban Waters, 326 E. D St.

The council aims to protect and enhance the 1,000-square-mile watershed, which covers the area from Mount Rainier to Commencement Bay. The group is looking for new members, Pierce County officials wrote in a news release.

County Executive Pat McCarthy will be on hand at the retreat, which also will include a presentation from Joel Baker, Urban Waters’ science director, the release said.

People who want to attend the retreat should RSVP to 253-798-6158 or lspurri@co.pierce.wa.us.

    Prepare for old Joyce McDonald to make another run at slapping a new tax on Pierce County taxpayers to fund her Watershed Council’s boondoggles (sorry, factfinding missions) around the globe to watch rivers in action.
    There are rivers in Rio, Rome, Paris and Sydney she is dying to view.
