Stewardship - Thurston Ridge

Come out to our Thurston Ridge Protected Area for a morning of pulling Scotch broom! This site, which some may recognize as the stopping place of our annual float trip, protects an important stretch of riparian forest along the Nisqually River. However, it also has a large area of Scotch broom. Join us in weed-wrenching away this nasty invasive!
