Nisqually Land Trust


Stewardship - Yelm Shoreline

Join us at our Yelm Shoreline Protected Area for a morning of pulling invasive Himalayan blackberry and Scotch broom. Earth Day is April 22, and the theme this year is protecting threatened and endangered species. At the Land Trust, we work every day to protect threatened and endangered fish and wildlife species such as Chinook salmon, steelhead trout, and Northern spotted owl. Removing invasive weeds is a practical way to improve habitat for these important species.
