Commodore Park - MLK Day Planting Party01/13/2018

Host: United Way of King County

Activities

Please join us in a habitat restoration project we believe helps to fulfill Martin Luther King's belief in service.

The forest in Kiwanis Ravine is maturing slowly, and older alders and maples die of old age while young conifers grow in their place. This is forest succession, an ecological process. Non-native plant species take advantage of gaps to invade, degrading the area's wildlife habitat value. We seek volunteers to help clear away weeds and spread new mulch to allow native shrubs and trees to grow. No experience necessary! Office, school, and community organizations welcome, and individuals and families.

Through habitat restoration, community outreach, public education and ongoing advocacy, HHH works to ensure the great blue heron continues to thrive throughout the Puget Sound region. We do this because we believe the great blue heron - and other wildlife native to this area - contributes immeasurably to the unique quality of life we enjoy here in the Pacific Northwest.
