Habitat Restoration in the Upper Boeing Creek Watershed this Sat., April 24


Shoreline student participants in a previous habitat restoration project at Boeing Creek.

Cap off Earth Week activities with a work party to restore habitat in the Upper Boeing Creek Watershed this Sat., April 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Meet in front of the gate to the track ( at the east end of campus.)

Due to an overuse of the area directly behind the track by residents who allow their dogs to run off leash, the restoration work will concentrate on planting natives and moving woody debris next to the new plants to help protect them from being trampled by wayward dogs. Some invasive plant removal may also take place. This activity will be led by Professors Matt Loper and Chip Dodd. Please bring with you a water bottle, thick gloves, work boots, long sleeved shirts and pants and, if you have them, shovels, pruners and hand clippers. Some refreshments will be provided.

Sounds like work but it’s a lot of fun! We hope to see you there!
