This site along Butler Creek has undergone robust restoration over the last few years with thousands of trees put in the ground and even more blackberry canes cutback. With the leaves being on the ground for winter, this is the perfect time to hunt for the invasive English holly throughout the property, and remove unwanted barbwire along the borders.

RSVP with Jennifer Mackey at to secure your spot!

Tools Suggested: Handsaw, hand pruners, wire cutters, and/or loppers.

Directions: From Bellingham, head north on Interstate-5, take the exit for Grandview Rd (Exit 266), turn left onto Grandview Road (WA-548N) toward Custer, travel approximately 3.5 miles and turn left onto North Star Road.
