MLK Day Restoration Celebration at Darlin Creek Preserve

Monday January 16th, 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service with the Native Plant Salvage Foundation on a stunning Capitol Land Trust Property! Come when you can, stay as little or as long as you like!

In honor of MLK Day, we invite community members to join us for a day of community service and hands-on learning.  Hot vegetarian soup, sandwiches, hot drinks, cookies, and other snacks will be available to keep volunteers fueled for this important work.

WSU Extension Water Resources/Native Plant Salvage, and Veterans Conservation Corps will join community volunteers to restore a property conserved by the Capitol Land Trust. While helping with the revegetation, volunteers will learn about techniques for habitat restoration, including planting on slopes and using live stakes for erosion control.  This is a great opportunity to learn about native plants best suited to different conditions while restoring the ecological function to this diverse property of wetlands, creeks, a lake, and forests.

Email nativeplantsalvage@gmail.com to register, or call us at (360) 867-2167.

Would you like to help us prepare for the event? We will be doing the hard work of site preparation on Thursday, January 12 and Friday, January 13.  Please email us if you are available to volunteer on any of those days!
