Volunteers needed for Sheep Creek Campground project

CAMPING -- The Washington Department of Natural Resources and the town of Northport are co-hosting a volunteer work party on Saturday, (Oct. 15)  9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Sheep Creek Campground near Northport. 

Two years ago, the town of Northport took over managing the campground for DNR. This successful partnership has allowed the campground to remain open during tight economic times and provide recreation access for the public.

The day’s work activities will include installing and upgrading picnic tables, installing an ADA-accessible barbecue, cleaning the viewing deck, maintenance work on fire pits and the group shelter, painting signs and outhouses and disposing of brush.

Volunteers can earn vouchers toward a complimentary Discover Pass.

Contact Lon Emmett, DNR, 509-684-7474, or Northport Mayor Mike Lamb, 509-732-4450,
