Birch Bay Clean Up: 4th of July 2021

Volunteers picking up trash along the beach at Birch Bay.

After a night of celebrating independence, over 60 community members came together on July 5th to clean up debris on Birch Bay beaches this year. Volunteers picked up 4.83 tons of trash from fireworks that were left on the beach, tidelands and shoreline. That's over 2 full sized dumpsters full of debris!

2021 Native Plant Sale

Over 500 orders packed up tight

 

The 2021 Native Plant Sale was a huge success!!  After a lot of uncertainty and some major adaptations, we sold more plants, more bamboo stakes, and gave away more blue tubes since the first sale 28 years ago. We sold over 30,400 plants, which will help protect water quality and enhance habitat throughout the region! We can't wait to see your backyard native landscapes grow!
