The October First Wednesday Work Party (October 6th) will take place at Wildlife Corridor from 9 am to 11 am. We will be working at Wildlife Corridor clearing ivy and blackberry from the eastern side of the property. The work area is a bit of a walk from the parking area and can be a bit steep depending on which invasive you want to tackle. If you haven’t been to Wildlife Corridor before it is in the center of the Island off of Koura Rd. The property is 34.5 acres and contains mixed riparian, wetland, and forest habitats and provides a critical connection for wildlife moving between Meigs Park and the Grand Forest complex. As always parking is limited so please RSVP if you are planning to attend. Parking directions will be provided next week for those who sign up. Tools, refreshments, and treats will be provided, so come with a pair of work gloves and be prepared to have a fun time of conversation, invasive species control, and enjoy Wildlife Corridor. If you are interested in attending, please email Lexi Wagor ([email protected]) or sign up on the Bainbridge Island Land Trust webpage – https://www.bi-landtrust.org/work-parties/
