Volunteers needed for wetland restoration project

The Nature Conservancy and Bainbridge Island Land Trust are looking for volunteers to help restore a nearshore wetland on the northeast side of Bainbridge Island during a Volunteer Service Day for Puget Sound on Saturday, July 28.

The work party hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Helpers should bring sturdy shoes, a water bottle and a lunch.

Volunteers will be treated to marionberry cobbler and vanilla ice cream as a special thank you for helping out.

The event is part of Summer of Solutions, a campaign sponsored by the Nature Conservancy in Washington and Washington Environmental Council, and is aimed at bringing Kitsap County residents together to protect Puget Sound.
