Second Wednesday Work Party

June 14, 2023 , 9:00 am 11:00 am

Tree Planting Follow-Up at Klingel-Bryan-Beard Wildlife Refuge 

In the winter of 2022, volunteers from all areas of the Puget trough joined us in a massive effort to reforest the shorelines of the Union River Estuary with 5,000 native trees and shrubs. It’s 2023 and those trees and shrubs are still there! For our next monthly work party, we invite you back to Klingel-Bryan-Beard Wildlife Refuge for an opportunity to help your saplings make it to the finish line! Together, we will be removing invasive blackberry and Scotch broom that are encroaching on the planting areas.   

Didn’t make it out last year? No problem! Join us in protecting growing space for this amazing project

What: remove blackberry and Scotch broom that is encroaching the planting areas 

When: Wednesday, June 14th from 9am-11am and from 4pm-6pm

Where: Klingel-Bryan-Beard Wildlife Refuge in Belfair – additional parking information and directions will be sent in an email when your sign-up is confirmed.  

Accessibility: We will walk approximately 0.1 miles to access the work site. There is no trail at Klingel-Bryan-Beard Wildlife Refuge, so come prepared to walk over uneven terrain. We will be doing work with our hands and using hand tools to remove blackberry and Scotch broom, both of which may involve some bending and stooping.  

Note: This event features both a morning and afternoon shift, please sign up below for the shift you would like to attend
