NCLC is planning an ivy removal stewardship day at our Sand Creek Wetlands Habitat Reserve, next to the cemetery in Warrenton. Sand Creek Wetlands is a gem: a pristine, intact scrub-shrub coastal wetland, one few people have visited. The vegetation is very dense, making it hard to walk through. We scheduled this stewardship day in the winter, when the deciduous vegetation has died back and it’s a little easier to move around, but you can still expect rough walking. Most of the ivy at Sand Creek is growing on large Sitka spruce trees, but we may find some on the ground as well. We’ll be using handsaws, loppers, and other tools to remove this invasive vine.

Please e-mail Stewardship Director Melissa Reich at melissar@nclctrust.org if you plan to attend; she will provide directions to the site and additional details. Wear gloves and work boots. NCLC will supply the necessary tools. Bring water and snacks/lunch; there is no potable water at the site, and no toilets. Dogs are not allowed on any NCLC properties.
