Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Skagit Land Trust’s Marblemount Conservation Area

Date: Sat. Jun 11, 2022 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Saturday, June 11, 2022; 8:00 a.m. to early afternoon

Leader: Tim Manns 

Meet at 8:00 a.m. at the National Park Service/U.S. Forest Service building at 810 State route 20 in Sedro-Woolley. Skagit Land Trust acquired the 67-acre Marblemount Conservation Area with its 2,900 feet of Skagit River shoreline in 2020. The property’s trails through riparian forest with mixed conifers and hardwoods should be good for finding a variety of spring migrants plus year-round resident birds. The Trust has given special permission for this field trip as the property is not yet open to the general public. If time permits, we’ll also visit Pressentin County Park in Marblemount where a major salmon spawning habitat restoration project will just have been completed. Bring binoculars and lunch. Dress for the weather. Wear boots suitable for walking on forest trails. If you plan to attend, contact Tim Manns at bctm@fidalgo.net or 360-333-8985.
