Bowman Bay Volunteer Opportunity
August 31, at 10am-1pm
Located along the scenic shorelines of Bowman Bay at Deception Pass State Park, this planting is part of the nearshore restoration project that began in 2015. Skagit Marine Resources Committee partnered with the Northwest Straits Foundation (NWSF) and State Parks to remove approximately 540 feet of rock armoring from the Bowman Bay shoreline. The goal of the project was to re-grade the beach to match the natural contour, add beach nourishment material suitable for forage fish spawning, and enhance riparian vegetation to protect the shoreline and provide important habitat.
Join us for a weeding and watering work party on August 31, to maintain the health of the shoreline restoration planting and ensure another successful year of continued growth. RSVP Kelsey Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or (360)336-0172 ext. 306
From Skagit County, follow Hwy 20 toward Oak Harbor; after Pass Lake turn right on Rosario Road, at the sign for Deception Pass State Park. Then, take the first left onto Bowman Bay Road and follow the signs for parking. Parking is limited; please carpool. Don't forget you Discovery Pass!
