1st Saturday Stewardship

Mar 2017 4

10:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Hurn Field

Come check out Hurn Field Conesrvation Area behind the scences!

This property provides food and shelter for numerous elk during the winter and spring seasons. House Slough, which flows into the nearby Skagit River, provides high quality fish habitat for juvenile coho salmon and cutthroat trout. Beaver, songbirds, amphibians, and waterfowl are also at home in the luscious habitat. A large portion of Hurn Field also remains in agricultural hay production. 

Details: We will be meeting at Hurn Field Conservation Area parking lot (directions below) at 10:00am. From there we will walk through parts of the property that that are generally not open to the public to a patch of invasive English Ivy. Pulling the Ivy away from trees and shrubs is very important for the local environment and can be very satisfying.

Directions: Travel on highway 20 toward Concrete. Hurn Conservation Area is about four miles west of Concrete. Click here for a map.

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

Interested in carpooling? We will be leaving the office at 9:00am.
