10:00 AM at Niawiakum River
Greetings, It's that time a year again when we are looking for volunteers with kayaks and canoes to survey for the invasive plant Spartina on the Niawiakum River in Pacific County. The date is Saturday May 12, 2007 with a meeting time of 10:00 a.m. The Niawiakum River is a natural area managed by the Department of Natural Resources. The river crosses Highway 101 about 6 miles south of the community of South Bend. The tidal river meanders from it's mouth through extensive salt marsh and is backed by the forested Willapa Hills. The Niawiakum is a beautiful river system and this outing provides and opportunity to see a variety of bird and animal life. We will map locations of Spartina for later treatment by the DNR. Annual surveys are needed to map plant locations and to determine effectiveness of treatment. This process of surveys followed by treatment does work. Because of successful annual efforts we are not surveying the Bone River this year. If you are interested in this event please contact Ken Guza at (360)754-7371 or email for more information on the meeting location, equipment recommendations and directions.
