Removal of invasive blackberries from sites at Jim Creek Naval Radio Station
A Navy-funded contract paid for the removal of invasive blackberries from sites at Jim Creek Naval Radio Station in mid-March. Most of the clearing occurred along river banks of Jim Creek and one of its tributaries, known as Coho Creek. Navy environmental staff, interns, and other volunteers from the Navy’s Morale, Welfare, and Recreation program planted native trees and shrubs in the areas where the blackberries were removed. Additional planting and invasive removal in these locations are planned in the fall, with restoration work expanding into new sites. This type of restoration project improves habitat for native wildlife, and particularly for salmon in Jim Creek and its tributary.
