Cascade Pass stewardship next weekend!

In the footsteps of Joe and Margaret Miller:

Join North Cascades Institute and North Cascades National Park Native Plant Nursery staff July 28 for a day of plant stewardship at Cascade Pass, the site of a major revegetation effort.  The day's work will include removing non-native invasive plants, collecting native plant seeds for the nursery and some planting if the season is right. We will be working with a variety of alpine plant species including white and pink heather, partridgefoot and huckleberry. We look forward to working with our volunteer Stewards to help revegetate one of the Park's most beautiful subalpine locations.


To register or for more information please contact Matt Kraska, Stewardship Specialist, at (206) 526-2575 or matt_kraska@ncascades.org.
