Chuckanut Island - Ivy Pull
Apr
27
10:00 AM10:00

Chuckanut Island - Ivy Pull

This 5-acre island in Chuckanut Bay south of Bellingham offers an excellent opportunity for visitors to see the beauty of one of Puget Sound’s rocky islands. It’s home to nests of bald eagles and it is a great example of native coastal forest habitat such as Douglas fir (some well over 250 years old!), grand fir, madrone and western red cedar. The island’s tidal areas offer visitors a chance to see marine invertebrates such as barnacles, rock crabs, sea cucumbers, limpets, hermit crabs and blue mud shrimp. Surfbirds frequently perch on the rocky shores.

Invasive English ivy has colonized portions of this special place and we need volunteers to help us remove it! This volunteer event requires no special skills, will require hand-pulling of invasive ivy, and include a short boat trip to the island. Bring a lunch!

Please RSVP below. An email will be sent at least one week before the event with more instructions.

Helpin' Out Bear Creek

Join us to restore native vegetation along Bear Creek that will provide cool, clean, and clear water for salmon! This is your opportunity to act, get your hands dirty, and ensure local, endangered orca whales have enough salmon to eat. This is a unique private property site where we've worked already this fall expanding the riparian, or native vegetation zone along the creek that's critical for salmon. These trees provide shade, filter toxic runoff, control water flow, and provide habitat for little insects that feed fish! Come learn more about the connection between orcas, salmon, and trees. Please dress for the weather. All tools and gloves are provided.

What: Read more about the event here.

How: RSVP, here

Chuckanut Island Ivy Pull

Bellingham, WA

Just north of Larrabee State Park in Bellingham Bay lies the small Nature Conservancy preserve Chuckanut Island, which was established in 1976 to protect high quality natural shoreline and rocky cliff habitats and the abundance of marine birds and mammals that live there.  We need 10-15 volunteers to pull invasive ivy that has started to spread on the island, in order to maintain its nearly pristine conditions.  This preserve features intertidal habitat, a wooded trail, and beautiful madrone trees on sandstone cliffs.

Volunteers for this work party should be comfortable riding in a small boat for 5 minutes to and from the island.

Reed Canary Grass Attack

Fisher Slough Preserve

Conway, WA

Spend the day attacking reed canary grass - an aggressive invasive plant in Washington. Reed canary grass is a major threat to natural wetlands, It outcompetes most native species as it forms large, single-species stands with little wildlife habitat value. 

Control will include tying back large stands of grass to help new tree plantings thrive, and we may dig up some whole plants from the root as well.

Sign up today to help us battle this invasive weed! Native wildlife will thank you.
