We’ll be working at the CLT’s Harmony Farm’s site removing invasive species and replanting an area. This work impacts local water quality and creates a healthy environment for the marine food web to flourish in, benefiting our precious Killer Whales. Tools, gloves, and warm lunch provided (clam chowder from Taylor Shellfish!). Please dress for the weather. Limited on-site parking means we’ll be running shuttles from South Bay Elementary to the work site.
