Habitat Restoration Work Party

03/16/19 - 09:00 am

Join Whatcom Conservation District and NSEA for a spring planting. 

This 5.5-acre property along Kendall Creek serves as exceptional habitat, creating a unique wildlife observation area, especially for birds. It is also the site of a future educational area for the local school, Kendall Elementary.

Unfortunately, Harrison’s wetland areas are inundated with Reed Canary grass. Willow staking is a great way to shade out that pesky grass – please join NSEA, Whatcom Land Trust, and Whatcom Conservation District at Harrison and plant willows in the ground to improve habitat! 

Parking: From Bellingham, drive east on Mt. Baker Highway (WA-542-E) past Deming to Kendall. At the traffic circle in Kendall, take the second exit toward Sumas (WA-547). Parking is available at Kendall Elementary School (7547 Kendall Rd., Maple Falls).

We’ll bring the tools and gloves – all you have to do is wear sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.

Light refreshments courtesy of The Bagelry and the Community Food Co-Op. Coffee provided thanks to NSEA’s official coffee sponsor, Tony’s Coffee.

Bring your friends, family, and enthusiasm and we’ll see you at the creek!

*Minors under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present or have a signed NSEA Youth Liability Form to participate.
