This National Trails Day we’re celebrating public lands at Westside Preserve!

Gather your pod and join field steward, Shauna Barrows, as we kick off another summer of trail improvement. Come relish the panoramic views and learn about the Preserve’s prairie ecosystem while clearing invasive Himalayan blackberries along the trails.

We’ll meet at the Preserve’s middle pullout at 11 a.m. and work until 2 p.m. Free parking is available at Lime Kiln Point State Park that day, in addition to the Preserve. There will be ample space to spread out as we cut back as many blackberry bushes as possible.

Please dress for the weather – long pants are recommended – and bring pruners or loppers, gloves, and water. A light snack will be provided.

RSVP to Tanja Williamson at 360-370-7655 or
