Hovander Homestead Park
April 19th, 2014
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
You’ll be working along the Nooksack Loop Trail in Hovander Park, Ferndale. Have fun planting native trees and shrubs to improve the salmon habitat on the Nooksack River. Streamside restoration projects are one of the most valuable methods of gaining community support, increasing awareness of the need for healthy watersheds and providing community members with opportunities to become involved with salmon recovery in Whatcom County.
Work with NSEA, Whatcom Conservation District, Whatcom County Parks and others from around the area. No RSVP, all ages welcome, all tools, gloves and refreshments provided.
Free keepsake t-shirts to the first 200 volunteers. (last year we had 300+ people out in Acme).
Here’s a Google Map link.
