Volunteer Opportunity: Restoration Work Party

February 2 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

It’s World Wetlands Day! Wetlands help to clean our water and air and provide important habitat for all sorts of specialized wildlife and plants. Say thank you to our wetland and riparian habitats along the Snoqualmie River by helping us to plant native plants and remove invasive weeds.

We are very excited to be taking our efforts beyond the farm and out into the Snoqualmie Valley to a very special wetland in Fall City. We will be planting on the Haffner-Barfuse Floodplain Restoration Project in partnership with the Snoqualmie Tribe. We are so excited to expand Oxbow’s restoration footprint by participating in this project that improves the wetlands and the river flow for endangered salmon and their downstream predators, the orca.

Of course we couldn’t make such a big splash without our volunteers, so join Oxbow as we restore the native wetlands in the Snoqualmie Valley. We will provide gloves, tools, and water.

Come volunteer at Oxbow and help us restore the native habitats around the farm. We will provide gloves, tools, and water.

You should bring:

  • your reusable water bottle
  • boots or close-toed shoes
  • clothes to get muddy in
  • weather-appropriate outerwear
  • snacks or lunch if you want them
