This summer and fall, thanks to a generous grant from American Forests, Conservation Northwest and the U.S. Forest Service are revegetating decommissioned roads in caribou and grizzly habitat in the Colville National Forest. This project continues Conservation Northwest’s collaborative work with the Forest Service and timber-products companies to healthy forests throughout northeast Washington.
Join Conservation Northwest and the Forest Service for the first work project Saturday, August 4, to pull noxious weeds on a two-mile stretch of decommissioned & obliterated road in the East Fork Le Clerc Creek drainage near Cusick.
Abandoned and overgrown forest roads are one of the key ways noxious weeds spread on public lands, which crowds out nutritious vegetation for native wildlife. Revegetation of decommissioned roads is one of the most effective methods of wildlife habitat restoration and can substantially improve browse for game such as mule deer and elk.
With a little sweat equity, we can make a big investment in wildlife habitat in northeast Washington!
Bring sturdy shoes, work gloves and a lunch. We will try to finish early enough to cool off in a nearby lake.
When: Aug 04, 2012, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Where: East Fork LeClerc Creek Road, Sullivan Ranger District, Colville National Forest
