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.

Ebey's Landing Trail Maintenance

Coupeville, WA

Ebey's Landing is an incredible landscape, offering fantastic opportunities for hiking with panoramic views of Puget Sound and the Olympics. Use of this area has increased in recent years, particularly on the popular Bluff Trail. The Nature Conservancy manages a section of this trail that is experiencing erosion, braiding, and development of social trails which destroy native vegetation and increase erosion. This is an opportunity to help with some of the trail rehabilitation processes and could include digging and placing check steps and water bars, hauling downed logs onto portions of the trail, carrying buckets of dirt or sand, or helping with re-vegetation. 

If you're interested in contributing a day of hard work while enjoying and improving this idyllic landscape, RSVP below! Full details on where to meet and what to bring will be send to confirmed volunteers.

Make a sign with us for the March for Science

The Nature Conservancy is joining the March for Science to make a stand with scientists from all over Washington who champion robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity.

We invite you to join us there, standing in support of scientists and their work to help us understand our environment, along with the role we all play in protecting it. Here at The Nature Conservancy in Washington, science is the driving force behind all of our work for people and nature.

In preparation for the March we invite all supporters and volunteers to join our staff in our Belltown office for a sign and banner making party.

The Conservancy will have a large logo banner to carry. Additionally we would like supporters to help us make signs to either advance our theme or to express yourself and your individual message.

Basic sign-making materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own if you have a fun idea that requires something special.

This is an "open house" style event. Feel free to drop in for any window within the 3pm-8pm timeline.

Fisher Slough Tree Planting - Day 2

Come plant trees with us! We need volunteers to help us get 200 pacific willow stakes, 100 red twig dogwoods, and 150 black cottonwoods planted at Fisher Slough. Last week volunteers started the planting effort but we still have trees left we need to get in the ground. Help us finish the job!

Fisher Slough is a restoration site that provides valuable habitat to salmon on their migration out to the Puget Sound. Trees planted here will provide shade and nutrients to the river that will benefit the salmon, as well as reduce space for competing invasive Reed Canary Grass.

Please RSVP using the form below by Friday, March 9th at noon. Full details on where to meet will be sent only to those who RSVP.

Fisher Slough Tree Planting

Fisher Slough Tree Planting

Our Fisher Slough Preserve needs trees- and lots of them. Trees planted during this project will eventually help to shade reed canary grass- an invasive plant that grows and spreads rapidly throughout wetlands, pastures, ditches, and shorelines. Although tricky to remove, reed canary grass cannot tolerate full shade and will begin to die as tree roots compete for space and tree canopy prevents sunlight from reaching the grass. This will allow for re-colonization of the area by native wetland plants, restoring biodiversity and elevating ecosystem function.

Make a Difference Day Tree Planting at Holy Rosary School

Make a Difference Day Tree Planting at Holy Rosary School

Tacoma, WA

Urban trees are now understood to be a central part of a Green City and they provide a range of benefits. Trees improve our urban spaces by:

  • Beautifying neighborhoods
  • Cleaning the air
  • Reducing polluted runoff
  • Providing shade and habitat for people and wildlife.

In the summer, shadier streets also means lower neighborhood temperatures, which can lessen the impacts of heat stress, and reduce the air pollution that increases asthma rates.

Trees at Holy Rosary will make an immediate impact. Air and noise pollution from I5 will be reduced and trees will bring nature into the student’s lives.

Cle Elum, WA

The Jolly Mountain fire swept through the Teanaway Community Forest and the Conservancy managed lands near Cle Elum leaving 1800 acres of Conservancy forest land burned. We have *just* acquired 1300 seedlings to help restore the area. Our local forester has pledged to plant 300 trees on his own, and we are looking for a group of hardy volunteers to plant the other 1000. Come help us reforest land above Lake Cle Elum!

RSVP by 10/25 at NOON for full details, and please indicate if you can bring your own shovel and work gloves, or if you will need them. We have a limited supply but will accommodate as many as we can.

The trail is flat, but there are roots and such so this won't be an easy job. Great for someone looking to get in a workout while helping maintain a pristine natural area!

Moxee Bog Trash Cleanup

Moxee Bog Trash Cleanup

Yakima County, WA

10am-3:30pm

Join us for a day of care and beautification for the first TNC preserve in Washington.  Moxee Bog was established to protect habitat for the rare Silver-bordered fritillary butterfly, due to a history of associated sightings and a resident population of Northern Bog Violets (a host plant for the butterfly). 

Over the years, encounters with the butterfly have waned, but the preserve still boasts a rich variety of native wetland flora amidst the highly cultivated Moxee Valley.  As development continues to encroach on this formerly rural landscape, the preserve has suffered an increase of illegal trash dumping. 

With your help we can publicly demonstrate that there’s value in natural areas like Moxee Bog, beyond just the convenience of a roadside dump.

Please RSVP for complete information on where to meet and what to bring, and we look forward to seeing you!

With its Ice Age floodcarved, steep-walled coulees, its pothole lakes, dunes, haystack boulders, waterfalls and scablands—this area is home to a rich and fragile mosaic of rare living things. Between the shrubs and grasses grow a profusion of wildflowers, including sulfur lupine and the vibrant bitterroot, long a favorite food harvested by native peoples.

Totaling more than 30,000 acres, The Nature Conservancy’s Moses Coulee/Beezley Hills Preserve is an especially rich and diverse example of Washington’s shrub-steppe.

Livingston Bay Scotch Broom Pull and Beach Cleanup

Camano Island, WA

Join us at the beautiful Livingston Bay site with views of Puget Sound and Mount Baker, where a pocket estuary has been restored to support runs of juvenile salmon migrating out of the Stilliguamish River. This project was completed in 2012 in order to bring essential natural processes back to the eastern shore of Camano Island as part of the Conservation Action Plan for the Port Susan Bay Marine Stewardship Area.  Right now the biggest challenge this area faces is the threat of invasive Scotch Broom which is highly aggressive and degrades habitat value.

Come help us tackle this noxious weed and clean up any debris that has drifted ashore while enjoying the fresh marine air - this Nature Conservancy project is not open to the public, this is a rare opportunity to see the site in person!
