Investigate how watersheds work! Visit the North Olympic Land Trust team in Port Angeles to learn about conserving important local watersheds, then van out to the Lyre Conservation Area past Joyce. Trek one mile down an unpaved trail to the mouth of the river. Along the way explore the history of this area, using your senses to help create nature journals to document your journey. Lunch at the beach, and explore the shore. On the return to the trail head, 'free the trees' with the Clallam County Conservation District by removing protective rings that have been preventing saplings from being eaten by moles and other creatures. The trees have outgrown their rings and they need to be removed before the tree is damaged. Return to Feiro with a sense of accomplishment from your adventure.
