Volunteers enjoyed perfectly crisp autumn weather at the South Prairie Creek Preserve planting parties. With construction of the South Prairie Creek Restoration Project on the horizon in 2020, PCD worked over the fall to plant 1.85 acres at the west end of the site. Twenty-eight volunteers, together with the District’s AmeriCorps members and Washington Conservation Corps crew, installed 1510 native trees, shrubs, and sedges.

Continue to check in on our website and Facebook page for info about Saturday planting parties coming up in February and March and potential mid-week plantings over the winter as we continue to chip away at the dozens of acres to be planted as part of this project.

Habitat Improvement Coordinator, Kramer Canup, Board of Supervisors member Dr. Brian Sullivan, and our new Habitat AmeriCorps, Kela Hall-Wieckert are seen here leading a group of volunteers to our planting site at South Prairie Creek Preserve.
