Walla Walla Community College watershed ecology student Valerie Scott calls for a bucket after netting a small fish from Titus Creek near the Community College. Students, instructors and local tribes people worked to move fish from a straight section of the creek so the creek can be restored to a more natural, meandering habitat for wildlife. The watershed ecology program is a new degree offered by Walla Walla Community College and this served as the first field trip for the class.
