Wildflowers and Wapato at Wolf Bay

August 21, 2019

Wednesday, Aug. 21
10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Wolf Bay Habitat Reserve

We’ve been working hard to rid the marsh at Wolf Bay of invasive purple loosestrife and yellow flag iris. Now we’re planting native marsh species such as wapato, aster, and checkermallow in openings where the loosestrife once thrived. Wapato tubers were an important food source for native people of this region, and it is considered a sacred first food by many tribes today.

Wear rubber boots and gloves. NCLC will provide the needed tools. Bring your own drinking water and lunch. There are no toilets or potable water at our work site. Dogs are not allowed at any NCLC habitat reserves.
