Two Birch Bay events this weekend will provide residents a way to celebrate Earth Day while beautifying their community.

The first event – a tree planting work party hosted Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA) – is a work party from 9 a.m. to noon at Terrell Creek on Earth Day, Saturday, April 24.

Volunteers will help NSEA staff restore habitat for Coho and chum salmon by planting over 500 native trees and shrubs along the banks of Terrell Creek. Tools and gloves will be provided along with refreshments from Starbuck’s, The Bagelry, Tony’s Coffee, Rocket Donuts, Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods and the Community Food Co-op in Bellingham.

Sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing are recommended. Meet in the parking lot at the Birch Bay Bible Community Church on the left. The Chums of Terrell Creek are sponsoring a BBQ lunch after this work party.
