Volunteers Needed to Help Restore Chico Creek

(Port Orchard, WA) The heavy lifting is over, but their is still work to be done. There are many opportunities in April where you can help restore Chico Creek.

Last summer grant funds allowed a portion of Chico Creek at Kitsap Golf and Country Club to be restored to a more natural path. The restoration projected included placing logs and other salmon habitat features to enhance the creek. April is prime time for planting native trees and shrubs. The new plants provide shade, habitat, and other benefits for salmon and other wildlife.

Community volunteers are needed to help complete this phase of the restoration project. We are planting at the creek on these dates:

Saturday, April 11th 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon

Tuesday, April 14th 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Saturday, April 18th 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Tuesday, April 21st 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

If you are interested in helping or need more information on Chico Creek Restoration Planting, contact Kathlene Barnhart at 360.337.4601 or email kbarnhar@co.kitsap.wa.us
