Restoration and Land Management on an Organic Farm, Oxbow Farm and Education Center, Carnation
Walk through a 100-acre property, viewing degraded and restored areas along the Snoqualmie River adjacent to vegetable production fields, and walk a trail on the island of the farms's namesake, Oxbow Lake. Along the way compare older (15-yrs) restoration projects with more recently planted areas, and learn how the land is managed to support wildlife, food production and education. Additionally, tour the new native plant nursery and discuss future goals for the property. No cost and open to both members and non-members. Click on field trips link to left to sign up!
FALL NATIVE PLANT SALES!
The Central Puget Sound and South Sound Chapters of the Washington Native Plant Society fall have excellent plant sales this October with a great selection. The fall is a great time to plant as new transplants can take advantage of the plentiful rain and generally mild winter temperatures to become established. Plant Sales link.
