an extra day for a good cause!
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.
This beautiful spot is adjacent to agricultural lands and home to salmon, birds and an incredible view of Mt. Baker. We are returning to this site for the third time since last spring, and we are happy to again co-sponsor 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.
Our work in support of this project began with Earth Day 2019, was repeated last fall, and continues to be a fine example of restoration potential in this multi-use area of our county. Last 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!
