The Nisqually Land Trust is hosting a nature walk at its Van Eaton property, along the Mashel River near Eatonville, July 13 from 1-3 p.m.
The moderate one-mile walk will be led by Land Trust staff to the former Van Eaton homestead on the banks of the Mashel, now the site of salmon-recovery efforts by the Land Trust and the Nisqually Indian Tribe.
The Mashel is the largest salmon-producing tributary to the Nisqually River and was once a major steelhead river, said a trust news release.
Runs of both steelhead and chinook have declined during the past 40 years, and both are now listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
Participants will learn about restoration of the Mashel and the importance of the Van Eaton property for the future of the fish.
Space is limited and registration is free but required. Contact 360-489-3400 or email@example.com for more information and to register. You can learn more about the land trust at nisquallylandtrust.org.
