Westcrest Park - MLK Day of Service …01/15/2018


DIRT Corps is back in 2018 at Westcrest Park to continue forest restoration for MLK Day of Service! This time we are going to tackle the western parcel next to 8th Ave. The blackberries are out of control, and it's up to us and our volunteers to bring it under control!

The beginning of this volunteer event will include a brief weed ID. Combine knowledge with action as we work together to clear this beautiful space of harmful species that overtakes an area. Many of you might already have this experience in your own backyard!

Let’s work together to gradually transform and maintain Westcrest and make it a great public space for everyone to enjoy. Let us know of any questions, hope to see you out there!

Open to the public

All ages OK
