Alpine Meadows Fence Pull for Whatcom Land Trust

Saturday, October 22, 2016 7:45am – 1:15pm

Work Party with Whatcom Land Trust- the Whatcom Land Trust is our regional version of the Nature Conservancy. This will be our third outing with them this year. We’ll join a work party at their Alpine Meadows property for a bit of fence pulling. There are a limited number of spaces for this trip, so contact Drew by Sunday October 16th if you’d like to come along. Our time at the site will run from 9-12 and they’ll provide a snack. Bring: work gloves (they have a one-size fits all if you don’t have any), work boots or hiking boots, and rain gear- this trip will run rain or shine- they cancel only in the event of high winds. We’ll depart from the Sunnyland School south side parking lot at 7:45 am. Suggested carpool fee $5. Drew Winsor, 425 341 3738, ajwinsor@gmail.com

 

Trip Report

whatcom-land-trust-fence-pullThree Mount Baker Clubites joined a Whatcom Land Trust work party Saturday for some fence demolition. We spent the morning with a crew entrusted with removal of a four-strand barbed wire fence from the WLT’s Samish River Headwaters property. We removed and coiled the the lines of wire, and then pulled the posts. Gorgeous day, gorgeous scenery, and a fine gang of folks. And an all you can eat buffet right there at the site that featured home-brewed coffee and a wealth of goodies from the Food Co-op’s bakery. Nothing could be finer!
