Samish Flower Farm Work Party - Invasive Ivy and Elm Removal
Saturday, *November 10th, 2019
In the early 1900’s, the 38-acre property now known as the Samish Flower Farm, was the first place that tulips were grown for production in Skagit County. Now, mature fir and cedar trees hosting eagles and herons have replaced the tulips. This large forested property, which borders Roney and Samish Island Roads and Padilla Bay, contains some of the Island’s oldest trees. Some trees are over 130 years old. Generations of Islanders and visitors have traveled through the stunning green canopy and felt a sense of place and history. It is the beloved “front door” of the Island, welcoming all with its beautiful natural character.
Join us in stewardship work to ensure that this area continues to be healthy habitat for wildlife. We will be removing non-native English elm saplings and ivy from the upland portion of the property. SLT will provide tools and training for the task at hand. Please bring a water bottle with you and dress for the weather! Any questions, contact us at
Currently there is no parking on site. We will meet at Community of Christ Church (11507 Scott Rd. Bow, WA 98232), then walk to the work site together at 9:00.
**** This event was originally scheduled for November 9th, but unfortunately we had to change the date. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
**** Please note, while we love dogs, and leashed dogs are welcome to most Skagit Land Trust properties, we ask that you keep them at home for these events. This will ensure the comfort of all guests at our work parties and other events and increase the chance of seeing wildlife.
