Minkler Lake Stewardship

Nov 2017 17

9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Minkler Lake

Details: Minkler Lake Conservation Area is home to many species of waterfowl, songbirds and an important water feature supporting salmon and steelhead. This is a great site to see many stages of restoration all in one day. Check out the trees planted in January!

We will be continuing to work on a patch of english ivy, and blackberry infestation. 

This work requires kneeling, pulling, bending and potentially navigating steep slopes. There are a variety of tasks available and we can meet your interests and comfort level.
