Freeland Wetland April 5 9am-12noon

Come help us get our newest South Whidbey Park ready for the public! We are working with Friends of Freeland, and hosting an Earth and Ocean Day event at the wetland, followed by the annual Peace Picture taking at Bayview.

We need to finish work around the new sign kiosk, the parking area planting and trail work. Please come with hand tools – rakes, shovels and loppers are all useful! We’ll be there from 9-12 and can’t wait to show you around the property and get it spiffed up!

Join us Restoring the Dalzell Wetland

Greetings all!

Join Whidbey Watershed Stewards restoring the Dalzell Wetland at the head of Glendale Creek. We’ve been working to restore the wetland hydrology on this site, and now it’s ready to plant! We’ve got plants and stakes ready to install, and we need your help! Join us on Friday, March 7 and Saturday the 15!

We’ll be on the site from 10AM to 3PM, please come when you can! Bring a shovel, warm clothes, boots for wet and uneven ground and work gloves. We’ll provide the rest.

Directions: The land is on the corner of Cattron Rd. and Cultus Bay Rd. There is no house, just an open field that you can see from the road. Heading South from Hwy 525 on Cultus Bay Rd. it will be on your left, just before the intersection of French Rd. Park either along Cattron, or Cultus Bay and you will easily see our white welcome tent.
