Opt Outside at Cumberland Creek
Friday, November 29th, 2019
#Optoutside with Skagit Land Trust! Join us at Cumberland Creek for a 2 hour work party followed by a 1 hour guided nature walk and scavenger hunt to the Skagit River. Please feel free to join us for just one or both activities. We will be removing invasive blackberry near the edges of the trail from 10:30 - 12:30. Then, from 12:30 - 1:30 we will lead a nature walk along relatively flat, but muddy terrain from Cumberland Creek to the Skagit River. There will also be fun activities during the work party for kids, so please feel free to bring them along to this family friendly event!
Cumberland Creek Conservation Area was acquired primarily to protect the salmon habitat found in the swales and side channels present on the property, and as a final part of a larger restoration effort to allow the Skagit to reclaim the Cumberland peninsula. The majority of the property features young forest, dominated by deciduous trees and a few interspersed conifers. Cumberland Creek is used as habitat for salmon, coyotes, deer, elk, beaver and various birds. It also has great access to the Skagit River and a trail network!
Skagit Land Trust will provide tools, gloves, and refreshments.Please bring a water bottle and a reusable cup for coffee/hot chocolate. Please dress for the weather and wear rubber boots if you have them, the trail can be quite muddy. We will provide training for the task at hand. If you plan on staying for the guided walk and scavenger hunt, please bring a sack lunch and join us for lunch along the Skagit River.
Directions: Parking is very limited, so please plan to carpool if you can. Take the South Skagit Hwy 12 to 13 miles east from SR 9, outside of Clear Lake. Look for the Skagit Land Trust sign on the north (left) side of the road. Turn north into the driveway and park next to the yellow gate. Volunteers interested in carpooling from nearby can meet at the Park and Ride off the South Skagit Highway in Sedro-Woolley at 8:45 to self organize a carpool. If you are interested in arranging to carpool from another site, please let us know and we will connect interested volunteers with one another.
**** Please note, while we love dogs, we ask that you keep them at home for these events. This will ensure the comfort of all guests on the walk and increase the chance of seeing wildlife.
