This week: join us Saturday on the creek to plant trees!

 

October 26th  is ‘Make a Difference Day‘!

Join us! along this beautiful stretch of Tenmile Creek as we plant native trees & shrubs to create a buffer along a newly restored section of the creek.  Meet at 9am-12pm – look for the NSEA signs on E. Hemmi Road, just east of Hannegan.

Baker.  And we are happy to co-sponsor this event with our partners Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA) and Whatcom Conservation District (WCD). NSEA provides tools & gloves – all you have to do is wear sturdy shoes & weather-appropriate clothing. Snacks courtesy of The Bagelry & the Community Food Co-Op. Coffee provided thanks to NSEA’s official coffee sponsor, Tony’s Coffee.

This is a continuation of the work we helped with for Earth Day in April, and a great continuing example of restoration potential in this multi-use area of our county. This past summer, the county redirected the creek into an original section of its channel, while installing a new, larger road culvert under E. Hemmi to alleviate local flooding.

Join us – we will be there with our display table – mud-boots, work gloves & all!DCIM100MEDIADJI_0011.JPG
