For several years Echoes has coordinated a service project in Maritime Heritage Park on Easter Day. It has been our participation in “practicing resurrection” - not just talking about the concept of resurrection, but actually bringing about some vital resurrection for our local ecology.
This year, instead of scheduling our Easter service project on actual Easter Sunday, we’re going to practice resurrection a day early by joining Nooksack Salmon Association and their efforts to restore the health of Tenmile Creek. It’s just icing on the cake that Earth Day and Easter are so close together in 2019.
NSEA’s website says this:
Celebrate Earth Day with NSEA, Whatcom Conservation District, and the Tenmile Clean Water Project, as we plant trees for salmon along Tenmile Creek. This beautiful site is adjacent to agriculture lands and is home to salmon, birds, and an incredible view of Mt. Baker. The first 200 people will receive a free, limited edition t-shirt!
Parking is available at Irene Reither Elementary School (954 E Hemmi Rd, Everson), look for the blue NSEA tent to sign-in.
We’ll bring the tools and gloves – all you have to do is wear sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.
Light refreshments courtesy of The Bagelry and the Community Food Co-Op. Coffee provided thanks to NSEA’s official coffee sponsor, Tony’s Coffee.
Bring your friends, family, and enthusiasm and we’ll see you at the creek!
*Minors under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present or have a signed NSEA Youth Liability Form to participate.
