Reed Canary Grass Attack at Fisher Slough

What?

Volunteers will help us locate previously planted trees and tie back or cut Reed Canary Grass.

Why?

Fisher Slough is a recently restored freshwater tidal marsh located near Conway. This site provides essential rearing habitat for salmon as well as many species of songbirds, waterfowl, and raptors. Reed Canary Grass (RCG), an aggressive invasive species is well distributed throughout the site and requires ongoing maintenance to control. One of the techniques used to reduce RCG cover is shading. We have planted many trees and willow stakes onsite, but they are in danger of becoming shaded by RCG. This volunteer event will focus on protecting those trees.
