Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge and Spokane Audubon Society will host a community work party on Saturday, October 16. This is part of an ongoing community effort to restore native riparian habitat to benefit birds and other wildlife species. We have hundreds of native saplings to plant, and fencing to build at the project site to protect the trees from deer, elk, and moose browsing. Everyone is welcome!
Attention Groups: Please call in advance to register. It helps us in our planning if we know how many are coming. The Refuge will also host a “potluck” lunch. Please feel free to bring your favorite dish. Ask for Sandy.
When: Saturday, October, 16 2010.
Planting Time: 9 am to 12 p.m.
Lunch: Potluck 12 p.m.

Clothing: Long-sleeved shirt, work pants, sturdy boots or shoes, gloves.
Equipment: (if you can) pliers, shovels
