Conservation Northwest needs volunteers to help rehabilitate an old section of road as habitat for bull trout, grizzly bear, elk, moose, and other wildlife on the Colville National Forest in north Pend Oreille County. This project is made possible by a generous grant from American Forests’ Global ReLeaf program.
Your labor of love on one or both days, Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9, goes a long way for wildlife!
A stretch of the middle branch of LeClerc Creek Road was recently rerouted and moved further away from the creek to protect fish and wildlife habitat and water quality. Volunteers will plant trees and shrubs to give nature a boost in restoring the old road bed to improve wildlife habitat.
Camping and wildlife watching/hiking options are available nearby, so consider spending the whole weekend up in Pend Oreille County and the Colville National Forest.
Getting there: Caravan and carpool options from Spokane are possible.
