October 23rd, 9:00a.m.-12:00p.m.

This 110-acre property has undergone a great deal of habitat restoration primarily led by previous Stewardship Director, Nick Saling, and contains one of the most impressive creeks in Whatcom County that provides spawning habitat for all five Pacific salmon species. We will be removing scotch broom that has invaded a restoration planting area. Make an even bigger difference like Nick did by bringing a young native tree (like Douglas fir or Western red cedar) to plant if you can!

RSVP with Jennifer Mackey at to secure your spot!

Tools Suggested: Pulaski and/or shovel; staff will bring weed wrenches.

Directions: From Bellingham, take Mt. Baker Highway east to Maple Falls. Once through Maples Falls, follow the highway for two sharp bends followed by crossing Maple Creek. The entrance to the property will be on the right-hand side at the bend in the highway after a straightaway. Look for the purple WLT signs!
