[ARCHIVED] Wildflower Planting Opportunity


Come help plant wildflowers and support our native pollinators. Meet at the Lakeshore Marina on March 25; drop in from 10 am to 1 pm to help with the planting. The Lake Chelan Rotary Club is helping with the project!  We will use a mix of drought resistant wildflowers that attract and support pollinators. All ages and abilities welcome. Bring your own rake if you have one. 

In addition to the Wildflower Planting  there will be a beach clean up: 

"Restore the Shore" needs your help! Keep It Blue--Lake Chelan, the Lake Chelan Research Institute and the The Chelan Project from Chelan HS are teaming up to create the first annual community-wide beach cleanup for Lake Chelan. March 25, 2023 from 10 AM to 1:00 PM. We also have support from Campbell’s Resort, the City of Chelan, the Planning Association of Washington and Pilgrim Lake Services!

We will meet at the City Marina Parking Lot (between the drive in and the go carts across from Chelan Market). Please “bring your own bag”, preferably reusable, because we want to minimize our environmental impact while we restore the beach. We will take it from there with students from The Chelan Project organizing groups to cover specific sections of beach.

We ask participants to pick up all trash items AND fragments of aquatic weeds on the beach and surrounding areas. Each fragment of milfoil can propagate into a new plant as the water comes back up this Spring. Not only will you be preventing new milfoil growth, you will be reducing the total amount of organic carbon in near-shore environment by removing invasive plants and other organic residue.
