Join us as we walk on freshly mown trails through the very green riparian forest by the Skagit River and Cumberland Creek, This is a 20 minute drive from Sedro Woolley. We will meet at 8:00 a.m. in the SE corner of the parking lot at the Food Pavilion off Highway 20 as you enter Sedro-Woolley from the west on Highway 20. Carpools will be formed there.
This will be an avian concert with a nice variety of songbirds, from Warblers and Waxwings, Tanagers and Swallows to Vireos and Woodpeckers.
We will walk on uneven, but mowed ground for about two miles. Hiking shoes are better than tennis shoes. Dress for the weather. Bring binoculars, a sack lunch, and water, and maybe a “sit-upon” for a break along the river.
The Skagit Land Trust began this purchase of over 200 acres at Cumberland Creek in 2005. They have continued work on it through 2013 and have cooperated with many partners to enhance the salmon habitat there. Emerson High School students have been key in creating the interpretive hiking trail used to visit the area.
