NSEA Community Work Party at Kendall Creek

Volunteer Event

This 5.5-acre property along Kendall Creek serves as exceptional habitat, creating a unique wildlife observation area, especially for birds. It is also the site of a future educational area for the local school, Kendall Elementary. Unfortunately, Harrison’s wetland areas are inundated with Reed Canary grass. Willow staking is a great way to shade out that pesky grass – please join NSEA, Whatcom Land Trust, and Whatcom Conservation District at Harrison and plant willows in the ground to improve habitat. Parking: From Bellingham, drive east on Mt. Baker Highway (WA-542-E) past Deming to Kendall. At the traffic circle in Kendall, take the second exit toward Sumas (WA-547). Parking is available at Kendall Elementary School (7547 Kendall Rd., Maple Falls). We’ll bring the tools and gloves – all you have to do is wear sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Snacks courtesy of The Bagelry and the Community Food Co-Op. Coffee provided thanks to NSEA’s official coffee sponsor, Tony’s Coffee. Bring your friends, family, and enthusiasm and we’ll see you at the creek! All ages are welcome. Any volunteers under 18 years old must bring a completed Liability Release Form (www.n-sea.org/work-parties).
