Last summer, thanks to the hard work of over 95 individual volunteers, we pulled close to 24,000 ricefield bulrush (schoenoplectus mucronatus) plants in our efforts to eradicate this Class A (Washington State) invasive species. It is back! If you are interested in a great opportunity to learn wetland plants, meet like-minded folks, experience ecological restoration first hand, and have fun outdoors this summer, we need you.
We will meet every Wednesday at 9 am in the River 'S' Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge through the middle of September. Wear long pants, rubber boots if you have them, and bring sunscreen and a refillable water bottle. We provide the tools (and some boots to borrow if necessary), snacks, and water. We end our work parties around 12:30 pm. Bring your friends and family.
