Conservation In 2005 Capitol Land Trust purchased the Malaney Creek estuary Projects Manager immediately south of Twin Rivers Ranch.

Because of the incredible intact condition G Board of Directors and strategic location of both of these properties, the acquisition and protection of these two properties alone constitutes an unprecedented Pene Speaks (President) contribution to the health of Oakland Bay and the southern Puget Sound Cathy Wiggins (V.P.) region. Bill Scheidt (Treasurer) Mary Ann Firmin (Secretary) Jeanne Koenings of the WA Department of Ecology says, “We are always Bonnie Bunning pleased to partner with Capitol Land Trust to protect important coastal Diane Cooper wetlands in south Puget Sound. Acquiring Twin Rivers Ranch means that Steve Hyer, Jr. we’re that much closer to ensuring Oakland Bay’s water quality remains high John Konovsky and that its shellfish are protected. No one entity can do this work alone, but J.

Although the majority of the landscape at Twin Rivers Ranch provides healthy habitat for fish and Bull Barn Before Demolition wildlife, some of the property needs more intensive management to enhance its conservation values. Twin Rivers Ranch was historically a working farm, but for many years the agricultural activity has been limited to periodic haying. Because of this transition away from intensive farming, invasive weeds such as reed canary grass, Himalayan blackberry, scotch broom, and others have managed to gain a foothold in areas, displacing Kathryn Moore native vegetation. Additionally, the Ranch contains several agricultural and residential structures that are no longer in use. With support from the WA Department of Ecology’s Hussman Grant, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the EPA, the Squaxin Bull Barn After Demolition Island Tribe, the WA Conservation Corps, and the Salmon Recovery Funding Board, Capitol Land Trust and Mason Conservation District are developing a restoration and management plan for Twin Rivers Ranch. The plan will address wetland restoration and native plant reforestation, as well as low-impact agricultural techniques. The plan will encourage the use of haying and limited grazing as a means for Guy Maguire dealing with invasive weeds in the former agricultural areas. Mason Conservation District has already removed 218 cubic yards of weeds on the property. Over the next six months Capitol Land Kathryn Moore is a Project Manager for the WA State Trust and the District expect to remove additional Recreation and Conservation Office and Capitol Land Trust’s pockets of invasive plants, and several tons of former Conservation Projects Manager. P AGE 4 C APITOL L AND T RUST N EWS Leave a Legacy for Conservation Thank you to our many members who have already included Capitol Land Trust in their wills and estate plans. Making a bequest is one of the simplest ways to leave a personal legacy that will last into perpetuity. As part of a will, a charitable bequest specifies that a sum of money or percentage of an estate, or a particular asset, be given to a named charitable organization upon the donor’s death. Retirement plans are often considered the smartest assets to leave to charitable organizations. These assets are unusual in that they are subject not only to estate tax, but to income tax when received by heirs. Both taxes can be avoided when a qualified charitable organization such as Capitol Land Trust is named as the beneficiary. For more details visit Capitol Land Trust’s website at www.capitollandtrust.org. Is Capitol Land Trust already in your will? Please let us know so we can thank you in your lifetime. Native Pigeons Thrive at Eld Inlet Preserve By Chris Maynard During purchase arrangements for the newly acquired property at the south end of Eld Inlet on Band-tailed Pigeon, Patagioenas fasciata Mud Bay, Capitol Land Trust staff learned of an unexpected bonus: mineral deposits that attract Band-tailed Pigeons. Doves and pigeons are names used interchangea- bly. By name, when the Passenger Pigeon became extinct, Band-tailed Pigeons became the only pigeon native to the United States north of Florida. Those familiar city birds, Rock Pigeons, are smaller and hail originally from the cliffs of Europe and North Africa. The Band-tailed Pigeons seem to share this fondness of heights by perching in the tops of the tallest trees. A white stripe on the back of their neck and a banded tail provide good ways to recognize our native pigeon. It also sports bright Bill Walker yellow feet. Like Passenger Pigeons used to do, Band-tailed Pigeons often gather in flocks, especially at mineral springs where they eat the salts. This makes them Band-tailed Pigeon tail feather showing easy targets for shotgunners. Market hunting in the early 1900s decimated their numbers, as did lax the characteristic band. game laws even up to the 1980s. Now hunting is strictly limited, and completely prohibited at this Capitol Land Trust preserve. But these birds aren’t out of the woods yet. These pigeons rely on mixed conifer forests with a special fondness for fruits from cascara and elderberry. A more recent threat is the reduction in their forest habitat in the form of even stands of Chris Maynard single-species commercial fir forests. So, it is not really surprising to find them on lands managed by Capitol Land Trust. These complex habitats attract and sustain communities of plants Chris Maynard works for the WA Department of and animals who find refuge from an increasingly Ecology’s Water Resource Program, is a photographer, humanized landscape. and has a passion for the natural world.

We thank her for all her efforts and will greatly miss her! “I’ve really enjoyed working at Capitol Land Trust; it’s been a wonderful experience. I will miss working with my coworkers and colleagues, who have become great friends and not just professional contacts. I think one of the things I’ll miss the most about working at the Land Trust is working with landowners and volunteers who are so committed to conservation. During the process of working on a conservation easement or acquisition you really get to know each landowner, their land and their conservation ethic. I will miss that day-to-day contact with landowners and spending time out in beautiful places. Thanks so much to everyone who made me feel welcomed and appreciated, I hope our paths cross in the future!” Susan Parish I SSUE 50 P AGE 11 Capitol Land Trust Welcomes Guy Maguire Erin Caldwell Please join Capitol Land Trust in welcoming our new AmeriCorps Stewardship Coordinator Guy Maguire! Guy hails from right here in Olympia where he’s spent the last five years getting his undergraduate degree from Evergreen then working for the Native Plant Salvage Project. Guy is originally from Portland, OR where he grew up playing in the wonderful forest behind his parents’ house… which is now covered in ivy, an occurrence which motivated him to pursue botany and restoration ecology in college. Guy practices Aikido in downtown Olympia, is an avid Blazers fan, and almost never wears matching socks (ask him why sometime). You may have seen him pedaling around town on his eye-catching recumbent bike. Guy says he “feels very fortunate to be a part of the Capitol Land Trust team” and he looks forward to a great year.
