Spring is nearly here, and it is time to dig in! Spend a lovely morning next to scenic Rattlesnake Lake on March 4th while planting a forest of native shrubs and trees. We’ll have an amazing view of the lake and the popular Rattlesnake Ledge, plus the occasional wildlife sighting while we work. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to take a quick tour of the facility with a Seattle Public Utilities staff member. There is an extensive history to this place with many entertaining stories to be told!
Who: All ages are welcome to volunteer with us! Please bring a signed youth waiver if you are under the age of 18 and volunteering without a guardian present. Youth under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
What to bring: Dress for the weather and wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes that can get muddy. Bring a reusable water bottle and a coffee mug if you have them – we’ll fill them! Snacks will be provided, but be sure to bring a sack lunch.
Where: This event is located at the Cedar River Watershed Education Center in North Bend. There is a designated parking lot for volunteers located very close to the work site. Event signs will be posted on the road to guide drivers in the right direction. We encourage carpooling to make your trip as pleasant and sustainable as possible!
Please register all individuals in advance so that we can plan for your participation. If you are a group organizer and are unable to register each person, please email Michelle Quast with the total number of people in your group at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
