The Island County Marine Resources Committee and the NW Straits Foundation (NWSF) are hosting a planting event to continue the great work being done at the Cornet Bay Restoration site. At Cornet Bay, on the northern tip of Whidbey Island, we worked with several partners to restore almost 1,000 feet of altered shoreline to a more natural condition. Our partners included the Northwest Straits Foundation, Washington State Parks, Island County, Sound Water Stewards, and Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group.
Recently, a dock was replaced at the State Park which required removal of some of the natural vegetation. We are looking to get those areas filled back in with beautiful native plants and to cover other areas with mulch. We can use as many hands as possible to get this work done. Here are the details if you are interested in getting your hands in the dirt!
WHERE: Cornet Bay near the restrooms, 160 Cornet Bay Rd, Oak Harbor, WA 98277
WHAT TO BRING: Coffee mug, water bottle, work gloves, shovels and hand tools (for planting or spreading moving mulch), weather-appropriate clothing, and a nametag (if you have one)
WE WILL PROVIDE: Water, coffee, and sweet snacks
Hosted by the NWSF; no training required
