Stewardship - Lower Reach

Join us at our Lower Reach Protected area for a morning of planting native trees and shrubs. This planting will increase the site's biodiversity and improve the forest along this stretch of the Nisqually River, creating better habitat for salmon and other important species. Stick around after planting for a chili and cornbread lunch provided by the Petersens, conservation partners who own this site.
