November 6th, 9:00a.m.-12:00p.m.
Our Bell Creek property hosts functioning salmon habitat, including Bell Creek itself and the North Fork Nooksack River, and contains diverse habitat for several other mammal and bird species. The riparian habitat along Bell Creek needs to be freed of invasive English ivy and periwinkle, which both smother and envelops native plants, by hand pulling these vines. There is an additional patch of invasive blackberry where roots need to be dug, followed by planting some native trees!
