Cedar Grove, Stewardship Partners and Carnation Farms are teaming up for a river restoration event March 18 at historic Carnation Farm, in honor of Compost Days.

“Compost Days, (March 6 to April 9) is an annual celebration of our region’s tremendous organics recycling efforts; residents, schools and businesses that diligently recycle their yard and food scraps year ‘round in order to divert those materials from the landfill and ensure they are manufactured locally into nutritious soils,” said Karen Dawson, director of marketing and community relations, Cedar Grove.

Volunteers will apply compost, plant native trees and shrubs and maintain previous plantings. These efforts will enhance salmon habitat and restore the riverbank. Additional tasks include invasive plant removal and maintenance on past planting sites. Volunteers will also be offered a free bag of compost from Cedar Grove Composting.

“Stewardship Partners relies on collaborations such as this one with Cedar Grove to help partners like Carnation Farms make a positive impact and improve fish and wildlife habitat on their land,” said Snoqualmie Stewardship Program Manager Chris LaPointe, of Stewardship Partners. “Getting the public involved is a great way to articulate all of our missions while connecting folks to some of the most amazing resources and history the Snoqualmie Valley has to offer.”
