Third Friday Stewardship

Oct 2016 21

10:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Minkler Lake

Details: This Conservation Area is home to many species of waterfowl, songbirds and an important water feature supporting salmon and steelhead. Stewardship at Minkler Lake this fall will include improving the quality of a low-lying area by removing established and encroaching invasive ivy. This is a great site to see many stages of restoration all in one day. 

We will be cutting the ivy off of trees and pulling it  away from slopes and wetlands. We have worked in this area before and with a big turnout this year we plan to make a lot of progress by the end of the work party!

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

Directions: From I-5, travel east on Highway 20 until it intersects with Minkler Road to the south, just after mile post 71. Parking is limited and on the shoulder. Please RSVP.

To Bring: Waterproof boots or mud boots, water bottle, and weather appropriate clothing. Skagit Land Trust will provide  light snacks, water, gloves, and tools.  Bring a kneeling pad if you like to use one.

RSVP by Wednesday, October 19th at or call 360.428.7878.

Carpooling is highly recommended parking is along the shoulder of Minkler Road- if you are interested in a ride or can drive others mention this in your RSVP.
