Help SeaTac’s Forests by Stewarding North SeaTac Park
January 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Looking to get some quality time outside? Then you should join the Green SeaTac Partnership and our Forest Steward Noemie Maxwell for an urban forest restoration work party at North SeaTac Park! Volunteers have been transforming this site – nicknamed “The Enchanted Glade” since fall of 2020. A thick mat of ivy covering the ground and the trunks of Douglas Fir and Madrones – along with blackberry vines entangling the lower branches of trees – has been cleared in a large area – and native plants are beginning to regrow.
Spend time in nature alongside your family and friends, and experience the amazing benefits of eco-therapy! We will focus on removing blackberry roots and vines around newly-planted trees and applying mulch to prevent re-growth. Come learn some restoration basics and help out your community. This is work that really matters!
All are welcome to join and no experience is necessary, so bring along your family and friends!
