Ten Mile Creek rejuvenated with native plantings

April 27, 2019by ncdea

WASHINGTON, Whatcom CD – With Earth Day approaching Monday, more than 180 volunteers pitched in to help plant 560 native-species specimens along a prime stretch of Ten Mile Creek near Irene Reither Elementary School on Saturday.

Together with ongoing tree plantings of the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) in the area, there is hope of successfully restoring Ten Mile to greater health for fish and wildlife habitat and overall water quality, said Aneka Sweeney of the Whatcom Conservation District.

Coho and chum salmon, and even some chinook, have been identified as using Ten Mile for spawning, Sweeney said.
