Have fun, do good, and get involved with the Green Redmond Partnership! Join our Forest Steward at Arthur Johnson Park for a fun morning alongside your friends, burn some calories, and help keep our forests green and healthy! We’ll be removing invasive weeds to make room for trees and native plants to thrive.
Everyone can help! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. We will provide all of the tools and training needed. Friends and family members are welcome, but please RSVP in advance to help us plan for a great event.
What to bring: a water bottle, a snack if you want one, and tough clothes, and shoes that can get dirty (because they will!), including long pants and a long-sleeved shirt to protect against prickly blackberry. Closed-toed shoes are required: work boots, hiking boots, or running shoes are all fine. Remember to check the weather and bring appropriate layers and rain gear or sun protection as needed.
Where to meet:We will be meeting at the main entrance to Arthur Johnson at 9am for a quick introduction and tool pickup. You can reach the main entrance from Union Hill near the roundabout. After that we will be working on the far corner of the park off of 196th across the meadow.
Where to park: Please park in the wide shoulder next to the park on Union Hill near the roundabout and in the parking spots next to the roundabout on 196th. If you park on Union Hill please keep an extra eye out for cars as you exit and enter the park.
All ages welcome. If you are under 18 and plan to volunteer without a parent or guardian with you,please bring this waiver on the day of the event printed and signed by a parent or guardian..
