Wetlands Habitat Restoration Series

This spring we will be continuing our restoration efforts on the Snowden Wetlands! We have several dates in March and April when we would like to invite any and all to join us in our stewardship. This event series is on a volunteer basis in which participants will be helping with the removal of invasive organisms, planting native shrubs, monitoring water quality, and surveying amphibians, birds, and reptiles. No experience is necessary and all of the needed equipment will be supplied. Whether you’re an expert on the restoration of wetlands areas, trying to gain experience in a related subject, or just looking for a fun family outing consider joining us on any of the following dates!

Can’t make it to any of these dates and/or times? Not to worry. We will have more dates in May and June for you to join us at the Snowden Wetlands.

To get to the Snowden Wetlands you’ll travel north on Snowden Rd. out of White Salmon. After about nine miles and a sharp curve to the right where an old fire station stands just look for our “Snowden Wetlands” sign on the right. The parking area is small so do your best to carpool.

On Saturday April 6th you may notice that we’ll be hosting Frog Fest which is a free event and a great time to search for our amphibious friends that should just be in the process of their aquatic to terrestrial transformation.
