King Conservation District (KCD) is partnering with the City of Redmond and Forterra in the development of a neighborhood stewardship program focused on maintaining natural areas adjacent to residential areas. This program will train Neighborhood Stewards in restoration practices and volunteer management, and support on-the-ground restoration events. This pilot Neighborhood Steward Program will focus on working in natural areas located within two Redmond neighborhoods: East valley Heights and Monticello Estates.
Come to our Neighborhood Steward orientation to learn about how to get involved in this new program. We will be discussing the importance of our forests while training neighbors of these natural areas to help steward the land by removing invasive plants and planting native trees and shrubs in order to restore the health of these forests! This is a chance to learn more about Washington’s ecology, the best management practices for forest restoration, and how you can help to be a part of the solution! Please sign up below so we know to expect you.
Everyone can help! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. We provide all of the tools and training needed.
We will be providing more details on the event as the date draws closer, but if you’re interested in the Neighborhood Steward program and would like more information, please email Nicole Marcotte at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 206-905-6924!
Where: East Valley Heights Neighborhood, Redmond
