Willow Cutting and Planting

Do you think it’s important to provide bees with pollen, habitat for birds, and
forage for deer and other wildlife?

You can do all these things and protect our riparian zone from erosion with the
Land Trust of the Treasure Valley Saturday, February 10 th at Perkins Wildlife Area.

We will be planting willow cuttings along the riverbanks in an effort to maintain a
healthy riparian ecosystem. Willow branches can be driven directly into the
ground using a mallet but some light digging may be required.

We will meet in the Winco parking lot on State St. and ID-55 near the Carl’s Jr.
From there we will carpool into Perkins. We must sign in to gain access to the
Perkins Wildlife Area so it is important to enter with a guide.

We will be driving to the planting area but there may be some light hiking through
vegetated areas. The weather should be nice but this is Idaho so please
remember to bring warm clothing, and remember, please leave Fido at home (even though we love your dogs, too!)

Space is limited so don't forget to RSVP!
