Earth Day

April 22 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Understand. Connect. Be involved.

April 22: Celebrate Earth Day with us! 

Join us in partnership with Skagit County Parks and several others for a fun-filled day at Howard Miller Steelhead Park in Rockport. This site has had many restoration transformations by SFEG over the past 10 years including riparian restoration through the mechanical (herbicide-free) removal of non-native invasive plants, planting of native trees by staff, volunteers and students, creation of interpretive signs along the trails.  More recently we’ve installed two foot bridges and restored a stream channel to help improve critical habitat for juvenile salmon rearing.

Celebrate Earth Day 2017 with educational and service oriented activities that include removing plant protectors, a demonstration of juvenile fish surveys, archaeological presentations, and more! We want our volunteers and guests to understand, connect, and be involved in the environment on an ecological level.

Everything is connected; come find out how!

Gloves and tools will be provided. Parking is limited; please carpool.

**Please RSVP for the volunteer party to ensure enough snacks and tools!
360-336-0172 or sfeg@skagitfisheries.org**

Directions:

Take Exit 230 Hwy 20 off I-5 and head east about 37 miles to Rockport.
