Help Capitol Land Trust with restoration of a beautiful property on Oakland Bay, 6 miles North of Shelton. I helped plan this event with them, but it turns out I can't actually go - I still want to be sure some meetupers can go, though! Please RSVP to Guy Maguire if you plan to attend and so he knows to expect you - [masked]. Also, use meetup to plan carpools from Oly - a lot of people will be helping at this event, and lunch will be provided by the Oregon State Alumni Association (this event is in association with Capitol Land Trust and Oregon State).
From Capitol Land Trust:
No experience is necessary, anyone is welcome and we provide tools and gloves to everyone who needs them!
Twin Rivers Ranch Restoration Work Party
Saturday, May 18th 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Join us at the beautiful Twin Rivers Ranch near Shelton for a morning of restoration work. Since the property was conserved in 2010, about 5,000 natives have been planted on the property to help restore the natural forested riparian buffers along Deer creek and Cranberry creek.
On May 18th we’ll be traversing the whole property, giving much needed TLC to the plantings.
This is a rare opportunity to see this special property firsthand! Sometimes called a “mini Nisqually,” the Twin Rivers Ranch property spans the entire head of Oakland bay, with multiple tidal sloughs winding through Sitka spruce forests and emergent wetlands.
For more information and to RSVP, email our Stewardship & Restoration Coordinator Guy Maguire at [masked].
