Work Party on the Sauk River
Jun

10:00 AM10:00

Work Party on the Sauk River

What?

Volunteers will be helping us pulling a noxious weed known as Policeman’s helmet/Jewelweed/Himalayan Balsam at our Smith Preserve near Rockport, WA.

Why?

The Smith Preserve protects a landscape mosaic of upland forest, wetlands, flood channels and extensive riparian habitat along the Wild and Scenic Sauk River. This site supports natural processes that create habitat for salmon and other wildlife across a larger connected landscape of protected land along the Sauk. Policeman's helmet, also known as jewelweed or Himalayan balsam, thrives in moist areas and riparian zones. This noxious weed from Asia can produce up to 800 seeds, which are viable for 18 months or more and can even germinate under water so seeds spread quickly downstream. When touched, the mature seedpods split and eject seeds up to 20 feet. This plant out competes desirable native species and is controlled mechanically through hand-pulling. This volunteer event will be held in collaboration with Skagit Land Trust on TNC's Smith Preserve!

How to sign up:

Reed Canary Grass Attack at Fisher Slough

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.

How to sign up:

To RSVP, please fill out the form below. You will receive an email with more detailed instructions one week before the event.
