Volunteer Opportunity – Wildfire Recovery Swanson Lakes
November 6, 2021
Volunteers are needed to get 9,500 shrub-steppe plants into the ground at Swanson Lakes Wildlife Area on Saturday, Nov. 6.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) effort is part of the restoration of the area after last year’s wildfire destroyed habitat for sharp-tailed and sage grouse and other wildlife. WDFW staff will drill planting holes for volunteers to drop plants in and tamp them in place.
Volunteers will meet at the area headquarters at 9 a.m. for shuttling to the planting site about a mile northeast. Planting will continue until about 3 p.m. to allow travel home before dark.
