Skagit Land Trust has recently acquired a new property in Marblemount! Diobsud-Abel is a beautiful 24 acre property; it features several channels of Diobsud Creek, is over 95% forest and has an intact native canopy with few invasives.This property also has a house and several outbuildings that are full of building materials, furniture and other odds and ends. We will be removing the structures on the property as we work to restore riparian forest on the site, but in the name of sustainability would love your help to salvage and pass items in good condition on to the Skagit community!
We are looking for volunteers to help us sort through these buildings and see what we can salvage to donate to our local Habitat for Humanity. We will be sorting through and removing some items from the buildings, possibly cleaning some of them, then staging salvageable items at an easy to access place on site for Habitat for Humanity to pick up. We will not be deconstructing any buildings, or salvaging any structural building elements at this event. This event will require volunteers to be comfortable lifting /carrying up to 40 lbs (and comfortable working together to carry heavier items as a group), handling items that may be awkward to carry or have sharp edges, sorting through used household items, and walking on uneven surfaces. Skagit Land Trust will provide gloves, dust face masks, and tools that may help with the task at hand, as well as refreshments.
Skagit Land Trust is excited to have the opportunity to reduce our footprint by reusing these materials, keep them out of landfills, collaborate with another local non-profit and help members in our community in a different capacity!
We hope you can join us!
