Come join Skagit Land Trust and lend a hand in the conservation and preservation of the Fidalgo Bay shoreline! This small parcel contains a mixed ecosystem of upland trees and shrubs as well as marine foraging and nesting habitats. From the site there is abundant bird watching. You can often see herons, hummingbirds, ducks, sandpipers and other waterfowl. Often otters are seen swimming in Fidalgo Bay from here, as well as deer wandering on the property. The shoreline is used by dungeness crab, pacific herring, and hardshell clams.
At this event we will be pulling ivy from the sloping area down to the water. We will then be spreading seed and planting native shrubs to try and reclaim these areas from the ivy.
Bring: Work and weather appropriate clothing, sturdy trail shoes/boots, and a full water bottle. Skagit Land Trust will provide snacks, water refill, gloves, and tools.
RSVP required: Parking is limited along the shoulder and carpooling is encouraged. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
