Spartina removal at Swinomish this weekend

People for Puget Sound is hosting the 10th annual Spartina Dig on the Swinomish Reservation starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 7 at Swadabs Park.

“Swadabs is a beautiful beach threatened by invasive Spartina grass,” said habitat restoration coordinator Keeley O’Connell of People For Puget Sound. “We need lots of volunteers to help us and the Swinomish Tribal Community dig it out.”

Volunteers will also learn about native marsh plants and how Spartina could damage the bird and fish habitat at this park.
