Stewardship - Darlin Creek Preserve (Olympia)


Stewardship - Darlin Creek Preserve (Olympia)

Celebrate spring's arrival by nurturing native plants at CLT's beautiful Darlin Creek Preserve! CLT supporters are invited to volunteer with Native Plant Salvage/WSU Extension Water Resources to plant native ferns, shrubs and trees to help protect Darlin's many acres of freshwater wetlands, salmon-bearing streams, and lowland forest habitat for both wildlife and people to enjoy. In addition to the planting (and maybe a little Scot's broom pulling), volunteers are encouraged to explore the natural splendor of Darlin by hiking the walking trails during this event.

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
