(REGISTRATION FULL!) Klingel Stewardship Series – Site Prep

December 11, 2021, 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Registration for this event is full.

Thank you for your interest in GPC’s Klingel Stewardship Series! Please check out our Events page for volunteer events in January!

Join us for GPC’s Klingel Stewardship Series! 

Are you interested to see a project from start to finish in a unique landscape? Join GPC at our Klingel-Bryan-Beard Wetland Wildlife Refuge in Belfair, WA for this Stewardship Series. This is a great opportunity to deepen your relationship with the landscape you love, and become part of the effort to protect your community’s most vital natural assets. Come get your hands dirty and protect the land you call home.

Klingel-Bryan-Beard Wetland Wildlife Refuge hosts scenic and ecologically sensitive tidal saltmarsh and grassland habitats, home to a variety of animals such as juvenile salmon and great blue heron. GPC’s stewardship work at Klingel will be accomplished in three steps: 1) preparing the site for planting, 2) planting 5,000 native shrubs and trees in January 2022, and 3) maintaining the site after planting. With your help, GPC can restore native, climate-resilient species in this special shoreline habitat!

Through this partnership, you can expect GPC to provide:

  • Lots of opportunities for team bonding! 
  • Stewardship activities designed to connect you to a beautiful landscape.
  • Information on the natural history, current restoration efforts in the area, and native plants.
  • GPC swag! 

Where: Klingel-Bryan-Beard Wetland Wildlife Refuge, 2091 NE Highway 300 Belfair, WA 98528
