Earth Day Celebration at Maple Creek Reach Preserve

Celebrate Earth Day with us!  On Saturday, April 19, 9 am to noon, we are going to plant trees, remove fencing and tackle a few clean-up chores on one of our most diverse and beautiful preserves. We’ve been talking a lot about Maple Creek Reach Preserve over the last year and with good reason.

For more information about celebrating Earth Day with us, take a look at our VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES.

Maple Creek Reach Preserve is a place where we can all make a difference. It’s a place where our efforts add up to real conservation success. If you have ever wondered if there is something hands on that you can do for the planet, then check out what’s happening at Maple Creek Reach Preserve. It’s a place in Whatcom County where the efforts of our volunteers to re-create and restore wetlands is providing a place for coho salmon to spawn and for young fish to thrive before heading to sea.

It’s a place where our efforts facilitate nature’s own restoration process. Restoration and conservation efforts at Maple Creek Reach Preserve support a wide variety of native animals, birds, fish, amphibians and plants. Thank you, for helping to make that happen.  We appreciate the help of our many volunteers and we appreciate all the ways that Whatcom County residents support Whatcom Land Trust.
