Volunteers hauling brush and slash debris to create a habitat pile

Come and volunteer with the Preservation Trust to help take care of some forest thinning, debris piles, and other fire mitigation work at the Celia Hunter Preserve on western San Juan Island. SJPT staff will be operating chainsaws and the volunteers will be creating habitat piles with the slash.

Not only will the forested areas of the preserve have more space for life to take hold in, but the built-up habitat piles will create more places for birds and bugs and other wildlife to thrive on this small-but-precious preserve. What a fun (and hardworking) way to round out the summer season!

We will rendezvous at Red Mill Farm at 9 am and then we will carpool or caravan to the Hunter Preserve, where the work will be done. If you live close to the preserve, you are welcome to meet us there too.
