For May we will be joining the land stewards from The Whatcom Land Trust at Stimson Nature Reserve! This event is happening on both Friday and Saturday, so choose which one to join! Because this event involves education and invasive species removal, it's a wonderful blend of education and work. Make sure to register (see below) as they are limited to 25 persons for each day. Come join this effort!
Here's the info from the WLT website:
Most Bellingham residents have walked the Stimpson Nature Reserve loop, but very few have had the opportunity to walk off-trail through the center of the property. With sandstone slopes, small wetlands, and diverse second-growth forest, the interior of the Reserve provides a beautiful picture of what the Lake Whatcom Watershed may have looked like prior to human settlement.
As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to see the true biodiversity of the park, and help us keep invasive plants in check.
Join us for our third Bio Blitz at Stimpson Nature Reserve! Be prepared for off trail adventuring, as we will be traversing the park to take biological inventories and remove invasive plants along the way. The last two years have been a roaring success with volunteers raving about the experience. With updated monitoring protocols and some skilled Bio Blitz veterans, this year is bound to be even more exciting! With so much interest, we have decided to offer this great opportunity on both Friday and Saturday. Note that this event runs from 9 AM to 1 PM. Please bring a sack lunch and some good hiking boots!
