Exciting New Partnership with the City of Olympia!

Quixote Village overlooks Black Lake Meadows, a beautiful City of Olympia wetlands area that gathers and filters stormwater. Tom Otto and Jesse Barnham, who manage the Meadows, brought a crew of Americorps volunteers and planted native plants, mostly from the Meadows, in the Village stormwater ponds.In return, Village residents will be trained to act as stewards of the Meadows by walking the paths, picking up litter, and reporting any problems they see to the city. Village residents will learn about storm water management, plants and wildlife in the area.
