November 20th, 9:00a.m.-12:00p.m.
This is a 100-acre property in the Lake Whatcom watershed and contains riparian habitat along Fir Creek and Anderson Creek, streams both utilized by Kokanee, an open field, and a steep forested hillside. For this work party, we will be digging blackberry roots out of the ground, cutting blackberry canes in the native vegetation, and planting native conifers to help shade out this aggressive plant. If we’re lucky, we might see some Kokanee and/or bald eagles!
