Work Party a big success

Now that the forecast finally says we have rain coming, we can all relax a bit -- those native plants we put in the dry, dusty soil up at the Diablo Lake overlook will survive!

A group of NCCC members met-up there last Saturday for a great work party, re-vegetating the grounds at the Diablo Lake overlook with help from the North Cascades National Park horitcultural staff.   

THANKS, NPS!

Nearby, some of the first vine maples had started turning fiery red!

 Some of us stayed the night at NCI's ELC on Diablo Lake
(see: www.ncascades.org and look for info about "Basecamp").
We held our board meeting there the next morning and
enjoyed the setting and hospitality immensely!

THANKS, NCI!
