Winter is plodding along and we’re in the midst of prime planting season! We’ll be working to restore the forest buffer along the Cedar River by planting native trees and shrubs, as well as removing aggressive weeds. We will also care for plants planted last year to help them grow up and provide shade over the river. All together these efforts will help with shoreline stabilization and enhancement of salmon habitat.
All ages are welcome, and no experience is necessary. Tools, gloves, skill-building and snacks are provided, and we can sign off on community service credit requirements.
Time: Saturday, February 22nd, 9am-12pm
Address: 1501 Orcas Ave SE, Renton, WA 98059
Where to park: There’s a large parking lot centrally-located in the park adjacent to the basketball court and baseball diamonds.
Where to Meet: Meet at the tent set up near the parking lot and basketball court. The meeting spot is easily accessible by foot or bike from the Cedar River Trail, or there is plenty of parking.
What to Bring: Come dressed to work outside (rain or shine) in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes (rubber boots, hiking/tennis shoes), long sleeves, long pants, warm layers and rain jacket. We will have a water jug, so please bring a reusable water bottle to refill. Volunteers under the age of 18 should bring a signed youth waiver with them to the event.
