Hi everyone! We can't wait for you to join us at Anderson Island to pull invasive blackberry weeds!

This event requires you to drive your own vehicle onto the Anderson Island Ferry out of Steilacoom, WA (unless, of course, you happen to live close to or on Anderson Island). The ferry costs a little more $20 round trip for driver and the average size vehicle, You can see more details about ferry costs at this link.

To spend the morning with us, you will need to take the 8:20 ferry to Anderson Island. We will finish up in time for you to catch the 12:45 return ferry. Learn more about the ferry times here.

Once on the island, you will head to the worksite, following the directions sent to you via e-mail with your registration confirmation. It is only about a 10-minute drive from the ferry terminal.

PLEASE REGISTER both on Mountaineers AND at our Eventbrite link HERE to reserve your  spot and receive directions to the event.
