Meet at Bayshore parking lot at 1:00pm.

We will be working with Capital Land Trust staff to locate all the bluebird nests, document whether there were nests or other creatures in them, and clean them out.  We will then check out the creek restoration and help to evaluate how successful the tree plantings have been, counting live and dead trees and learning about how Capital Land Trust turned this golf course back into a natural environment to help salmon.  We will then be free to explore the big trees and wildlife at the mouth of the river.  Enjoy a special snack and hot drinks under one of the fabulous old golf course trees here.

This is a good experience for kids 6 and over.

This is a community service/stewardship activity.
