Terrell Creek Earth Day Work Party and Restoration Site Tour

prep

boys and shovelJust over 200 volunteers of all ages joined together for an Earth Day celebration with Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association and the Chums of Terrell to continue the restoration of streamside habitat along the banks of Terrell Creek. This long-term habitat restoration project continued this year with the planting of 612 native trees and shrubs!

Special thanks to BP for providing the restoration site and continued support of salmon habitat restoration and water quality improvements.

plantingAfter spending the morning getting dirty and creating habitat, the Chums of Terrell Creek organized a self-guided tour of local farm and habitat improvement projects. Each of us can make a difference for salmon and water quality in our own lives, and what a great opportunity to see what others are doing in their own backyard for the benefit of all.  Tour participants met two Terrell Creek Watershed Stewards that have made property improvements including: livestock exclusion fencing, pasture management improvements, stream side vegetation planting, fish barrier removal, and more.
