We work closely with the Bellingham Parks & Recreation staff for our stewardship work. Together, we started piloting an on-site composting program. These are the piles that we worked with volunteers to remove the invasives species and pile them up to decay in place. You can see the lattice work underneath the English Holly boughs that are long dead.
The orange tag identifies a new native Western Red Cedar that volunteers put in the ground after a year of clearing the space.
The huge brown piles are a testament to the volunteer work that we have accomplished with Phillips 66 employees and public volunteers.
Fresh piles that clear space for future plantings.
Thank you to all of our volunteers.
