Girl Scout MLK Jr. Eco Day

January 21 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Calling all Girl Scouts! Spend your Martin Luther King day learning and serving in the natural world! Join Skagit Land Trust at our Barr Creek Conservation area and start your way to earning your eco badge. Scouts will learn about wildlife on a nature hike, explore biodiversity while planting trees and shrubs, and experience hands on conservation work by focusing on invasive species. Home to roosting eagles and endangered marbled murrelets and northern spotted owls, this protected property is a great way to see conservation in action! Snacks will be provided, but plan on having lunch before the event. *This is a Girl Scout event. We encourage the public to look at our other stewardship events happening this month on our events page.* Drop Off: With a signed waiver by a legal guardian, girls can be dropped off. In order to attend the event girls MUST have a signed waiver. Parents, family members, friends and siblings are all encouraged to come! A waiver will be emailed to you after registration. Directions: Barr Creek Conservation Area Take Highway 20 east to Rockport. Turn left onto Conrad Road at milepost 98, approximately 1.5 miles after the junction of Highway 20 and Highway 530 (which leads to Darrington). Take a left on Conrad Road and drive up the hill, passing several private homes. Approximately 100 yards after house #54607 look for a pullout and the trailhead on the left side of Conrad Road.
