The Red Salmon Creek property is vital to wildlife restoration in the lower Nisqually River Watershed. This is our final large planting at Red Salmon Creek and we will be setting 4,500 trees and shrubs between Red Salmon and Washburn Creeks. These creeks feed into the Nisqually delta near our property. This is excellent habitat for salmon, bald eagles, buffleheads, beaver and countless other species.
The plantings are scheduled from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. each day, March 6 & 7. Tools will be provided, but feel free to bring your own shovel and gloves if you have them. Please bring rain gear, boots, and work clothes you dont mind getting muddy. Make sure your friends bring their essentials as well.
Directions to Red Salmon Creek:
a. Take Exit #116 (Mounts Road).
b. Head west off the exit, and drive through the Fort Lewis Golf Course.
c. Follow Mounts Road for approximately 1 miles to the driveway on the left just before going under the railroad tracks.
d. Parking at the project site is very limited. Please park along the road shoulder above the railroad tracks and walk down to the site, which is at the end of the driveway.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
