Join Conservation Northwest, the U.S. Forest Service and the Ruffed Grouse Society for a work party to remove invasive plant species and improve critical wildlife habitat. We’ll be tackling Scotch broom and other invasives and thinning some saplings.

Saturday, May 14

8:30am – 12:00pm

We will meet at the Greenwater Fire Station, then park a few miles south and walk to the work site from there. You can expect a half-mile walk into the work area.

If interested in volunteering, please bring a water bottle, sturdy footwear, and clothing for rain or shine. Lunch is provided but feel free to bring your own if preferred. This is a hand-tool work party with hand saws and loppers. Tools will be on-site but please bring your own if you’d like.

Our work in the Greenwater River corridor will improve foraging opportunities for elk, grouse, and other species that benefit from early successional habitat. Our efforts can help create resilient spaces for wildlife to thrive and is meaningful to local Tribes connected to this land and its numerous resources. This work falls under the Central Cascades Watershed Restoration program, which aims to restore, connect and protect wildlife corridors, critical habitat, and watersheds around the central Cascades region.

Please sign-up by using the RSVP form below. We hope to see you there!
