Capitol Land Trust is excited to team up with Mason Conservation District to host this stewardship event for the third annual Orca Recovery Day at Bayshore Preserve. Volunteers will assist in an invasive removal and planting project along Johns Creek and the Johns Creek estuary.
Orca Recovery Day was inspired by the declining population of Southern Resident orcas. With just over 70 individuals left in the local population, we must act now. By working to improve salmon habitat, we can help provide a food source and clean waters to save the most iconic species of the Pacific Northwest. As we restore our shorelines, there will be more forage fish such as sand lance and smelt, giving the salmon more food and therefore more food for the orcas.
Group sizes will be capped at 10 people total, so it is very important to RSVP all guests for this event. We are able to host two groups for each shift.

Two shifts are available: 10:00 AM – Noon & 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Bayshore Preserve, Shelton, Mason County
