Potting Party – Riverstead Barn

Join The Whatcom Land Trust at our barn at WLT’s Riverstead property to pot young trees for future planting parties! Keeping them safe and cozy in pots for a year helps the trees develop roots so that they can survive dry Whatcom County summers. We’ll have our hands in the dirt from 9 am to 3 pm, so come for the day or drop by for a couple of hours. This is a great opportunity to meet other Land Trust volunteers and learn about our story.
