Cumberland Creek Tour and Planting

Mar 2015 28

10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Cumberland Creek Conservation Area

Join Skagit Land Trust at the Cumberland Creek Conservation Area to plant trees and view the incredible creek reconnection project that was accomplished last year. This unique project -- which some call Skagit's "Little Elwha" project -- re-opened nearly a mile of prime fish habitat that had been lost for more than 80 years.  We'll tour the site, talk about the creek reconnection and then plant trees and shrubs in areas disturbed during construction.  Stay afterward and hike the more than two miles of trails with access to the Skagit and a beautiful crescent-shaped pond -- all amidst the spring birdsong of this floodplain forest.

*Physical requirements: Digging, bending, kneeling, and walking.   The terrain is fairly level and right next to the creek’s edge.  This opportunity can also be used to complete required community service hours (just bring the appropriate paperwork for Skagit Land Trust staff to sign).

To Bring:  We will have supplies and snacks, but you are welcome to bring your own gloves or tools.  Bring a lunch and stay for awhile, and also please bring your own water bottle, boots, and weather and working-appropriate clothing.

Directions: From the South Skagit Hwy Park & Ride in Sedro-Woolley off of Route 9, take the S. Skagit Hwy 12 miles east. Turn left into the driveway 34183. Park in front of the (locked) gate and walk in. Click here for a map. 

Carpooling is highly recommended- contact Kay at if you want to carpool.
