The Chehalis River Basin Land Trust is doing extraordinary work in our community. Largely volunteer driven, this organization is restoring and reviving some of our most important natural places.

On February 3, the Chehalis River Basin Land Trust held a “Native Plant Restoration Work Party” along the Discovery Trail in Centralia. Here the team continued the efforts of many Lewis County volunteers in planting and protecting a strip of land bordering the river. Under the watchful gaze of bald eagles, the volunteers planted shrubs, placed protection over seedlings and marvelled at the remarkable natural beauty around them. There truly is nothing better than savoring fresh air, enjoying the scenery and accomplishing something great.

If you haven’t joined a Chehalis River Basin Land Trust work party yet, you’ve got to try it out. If you’re lucky, you might even get to enjoy some delicious Fuller’s doughnuts afterward!
