Stewardship - Mount Rainier Gateway

Join us at our Mt. Rainier Gateway Protected Area for a fun morning of habitat restoration! We will be controlling vinca, an invasive ornamental groundcover. Vinca creates dense groundcover mats that make it difficult for native plants to grow and doesn't provide sufficient nutrition for wildlife. It's important that we control it at the Gateway so native vegetation can thrive!
