An overview of our efforts to restore habitat in the North Cascades
Over the years, we've been hard at work restoring and strengthening habitat across the North Casades. We've had a number of accomplishments.
In 2007, volunteers began a long-term effort to restore habitat in the Cascades. Projects involved restoring floodplain along the Cooper and Cle Elum rivers, rehabilitating a closed portion of a campground, and planting 100 western red ceders and white pines at Gold Creek to reintroduce diversity to the habitat’s population of trees.
We’ve continued to return to Gold Creek, collaborating with many organizations and businesses on a number of other projects. We’ve helped build bird boxes, pull invasive species, and build the population of native plants. In 2010, with support from listerners to KPLU's Birdnote we teamed up with the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest to install bird boxes on national forest land to provide habitat for birds.
