Planting Party , partnered with Whatcom Land Trust & Whatcom Conservation District - Kelsey
This ~20-acre piece of hidden paradise is located just northeast of Lake Terrell. The previously farmed property contains a mix of meadows, small wetlands, about 1/3 mile of Butler Creek, and an alder-dominated forest. Join Whatcom Land Trust, Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA), and Whatcom Conservation District in improving riparian habitat by planting various trees along Butler Creek and protecting them from beavers and deer browse.
