Cornet Bay Weeding Party
May 24, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The planting event at Cornet Bay in Deception Pass State Park on Saturday March 19, 2016 was a HUGE success. 76 volunteers planted hundreds of trees, shrubs, and native beach grasses! There was an extremely impressive improvement and a big thank you to all of our volunteer’s hard work. That being said, there is still more to do! Now that we have planted all of these amazing native plant species, we need to maintain a good habitat for them to grow. Skagit Fisheries will be hosting monthly weeding parties at Cornet bay now through the summer to help keep this site beautiful and make sure all of our hard work pays off.
Join us at this beautiful site to help pull weeds and learn about some native beach plants. Our Restoration Tech, Rachael,
will be out at Cornet bay from 10:00 am- 1:00 pm on every fourth Tuesday of the month. The weeding party dates are May 24, June 28, July 26 and August 23. You can also click here to check out our calendar for all our events.
