Leadbetter "First Saturday"

Come join Friends of Willapa Refuge on Saturday, July 3, at the Leadbetter Unit of Willapa NWR for some trail work! This is the July production of "First Saturday" volunteer programs where Friends members and the public are invited to "get hands dirty" in support of the Refuge. For this July 3, they extend a special invite to all non-local Friends members who will be visiting the Peninsula for the holiday weekend! All ages and abilities are welcome; they've plenty of tasks for everyone's contributions.

They'll meet no later than 9am at the Leadbetter Unit parking lot (main lot, at the far end of Stackpole Road) and be finished by 2pm, latest.

By July 3, the Blue and Yellow trails to the beach approaches will be open (winter and spring floods render the trails impassible until summertime), so helpers can march through with their loppers to prune back encroaching vegetation; pull brush over unofficial, informal "social trails"; check the signage; and, pull some of the gorse/scotch broom that plagues those sandy soils.

All you'll need to bring are workgloves and sturdy footwear, plus bug spray, water, and snacks. They'll provide needed tools.
