Last year, with the help of our amazing volunteers, we were able to make a huge impact at Ron Regis Park, but there is still lots of work to be done. We will continue to restore a healthy forest along the Cedar River by planting native trees and shrubs at Ron Regis Park that will one day grow to a functioning forest that support salmon in the river.
All ages welcome, and no experience necessary. Tools, gloves, skill-building and snacks are provided, and we can sign off on community service credit requirements.
WHEN: Saturday, February 23rd, 9am-noon
WHERE: Ron Regis Park – 1501 Orcas Ave SE, Renton, WA 98059
WHERE TO PARK: There is 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.
