Trail Update: Plenty of fun stuff happening at our Dec 10 work party

There’s a lot of fun stuff happening at our Dec 10 work party – we hope you’ll join us.

We will be clearing brush and shaping the new trail. This work is fun, social, and dirty, great for families with kids!

In the flood area next to Hansen Creek, we plan to finish the elevated trail. We need 2 people to run power carriers and 3-4 people to stack and rake. (If you would like to learn how to drive a power carrier, let us know! No experience required, just a willingness to learn and commit to safety)

Work party volunteers are also invited to take part in a salmon fry release at Hansen Creek. Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group and the Skagit Children’s Museum will be gathering at the Thompson Dr footbridge at noon. Anyone who would like to attend can take an early lunch break and walk with Jenny to the release site. The release will take 10-15 minutes.

At the Pump House Trailhead we’ll be popping up the tent and enjoying hot drinks and holiday treats during our lunch break.

Trail volunteers are also invited to our after-session meeting to enjoy dinner, review the day’s work, and make plans for our 2023 work parties. Volunteer input is encouraged and appreciated!

This is our last work party before winter break. Dress for wet weather – layers and a raincoat. Bring lunch and water. Plan to arrive at the trailhead no later than 8:55 am – our safety meeting starts at 9am.
