32825 Rippet Road, Seaside
North Coast Land Conservancy, The Rotary Club of Seaside, The Necanicum Watershed Council, and SOLV are joining together to celebrate Earth Day by hosting a community tree planting event at the 364-acre Circle Creek Habitat Reserve. Since 2004, North Coast Land Conservancy–with the support of hundreds of volunteers–has been re-establishing forested habitat throughout the pasture along Circle Creek, an important waterway for spawning coho and chinook salmon and winter steelhead trout. Seven years and 20,000 trees later, we’re still going strong.
A large part of the Circle Creek property is a Sitka spruce swamp, a now rare habitat that was once common all along the North Coast. Circle Creek is a place of great biodiversity– elk, beavers, otters, bald eagles, black bears, Canada geese, and many different waterfowl and migrating song birds all make use of the swamp, open pasture, scrub-shrub thickets and emergent wetlands that exist here in this special place.
