Springtime is nearly here!
That means it is almost time to return to McLane Creek; to upkeep the trail and insure that it is accessible for all who want to enjoy the parks beauty.
This spring and summer we are meeting Thursday afternoons from 3 - 5:30.
April 18, May 2, May 16, June 6, June 20,
July 18, August 15, September 19
Since 2009, Native Plant Salvage Project, Stream Team and the Department of Natural Resources have been collaborating to steward the beautiful McLane Creek Trail. Spend an afternoon with us as we help maintain the trails, while appreciating the diversity of this wonderful example of a Puget lowland forest. We mindfully trim back growth along the trail, pull weeds and clear the paths of any large debris.
We have lot’s happening this spring. Visit our Events Calendar to keep up with us!
Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. We will provide gloves, tools and refreshments. Volunteers are usually issued a free one-day parking pass in lieu of the Discover Pass that is now required at WA State DNR sites. Youth under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
Our stewardship activities usually begin in April and continue through October or November, depending on need. Check out our upcoming events page to see upcoming work parties.
An afternoon with Stream Team and the Native Plant Salvage team will give you a chance to exercise your plant knowledge in the company of experienced volunteers and educators, and your service will help DNR keep the trails accessible to the public.
