Spend a few hours maintaining the trails, while appreciating the diversity in this wonderful example of a Puget lowland forest. We mindfully trim back growth along the trail, remove leaf debris from boardwalks, and clear the paths of any large debris.

Since 2009, Native Plant Salvage Project, Stream Team and the Department of Natural Resources have been collaborating to steward the beautiful McLane Creek Nature Trail.

An outing with Stream Team and the Native Plant Salvage team will give you a chance to exercise your plant knowledge in the company of experienced volunteers and educators, and your service will help DNR keep the trails accessible to the public, while keeping habitat value as high as we can.

Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.  We will provide gloves, tools and masks if volunteers don’t have their own. Volunteers are usually issued a free one-day parking pass in lieu of the Discover Pass that is now required at WA State DNR sites.  Youth under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

Our stewardship activities usually begin in April and continue through October or November, depending on need.
