Barney Lake Planting

Mar 2016 13

9:30 AM to 12:30 PM
Barney Lake Conservation Area

Please note: 3/13 is Daylight Savings and your clock will be turned 1 hour ahead, so it will feel like we're meeting at 8:30 - but we'll bring lots of coffee!

Details: Please join Skagit Land Trust at our largest Conservation Area, Barney Lake to help restore this jewel on the edge of Mount Vernon. This highly diverse wetland, river and lake complex provides critical resting grounds for wintering waterfowl, and fish habitat throughout the year. During this stewardship event we will be be planting trees and shrubs in a remote part of the property where there is not currently public access, so this is a great way to see an up-close view of this special conservation area.

 Directions: From Mount Vernon take College Way (Highway 538) east to Martin Road, turn left. Turn right on to McLaughlin Road and then left on McLaughlin Extension Road. The road then winds uphill through working farm buildings. Parking is limited, please carpool if possible. Parking is located approximately here.

**Contact our volunteer coordinator to RSVP at or (360)428-7878 and include your carpool request by Thursday, March 11th**

To bring: This area is extremely muddy, muck boots or hip waders are a must!! If you do not have a pair include your request to borrow in your RSVP, limited supplies. Weather and work appropriate clothing, water bottle, hat, sunglasses. Do not bring anything you do not want to get mud on!

Groups are welcome. Hope to see you there!
