Oak Planting on Phelps Preserve
October 17, 2019 at 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Phelps Preserve, acquired in 2011, consists of 40 acres of pastoral farmland, wetland, and remnant forest on San Juan Island. It is home to one of the three Island Marble Butterfly habitat patches that SJPT is managing, and Western bluebirds have been seen on the preserve in recent years.
Join our efforts to enhance Western bluebird habitat by planting Garry oak seedlings from the Salish Seeds Project, a joint program of the Preservation Trust and the San Juan County Land Bank.
Listed start and ending times are approximate. Work parties typically last 3-4 hours and are timed to meet ferry schedules. Details about when and where to meet, etc., will be emailed to registered participants prior to the event.
