Discovery Park - Earth Day at Discovery ...04/22/2018
Come celebrate the Earth with a fun filled day in the park! We will rampage against invasive blackberries with shovels and loppers and free up precious baby trees from their grips! You will be rewarded with cookies, coffee, and a feeling of satisfaction, helping our local native habitat thrive and provide shelter for the many birds and other wildlife within our local parks. Stay for an hour or the whole show, school credit provided/ welcomed.
Open to the public
All ages OK

What to Bring
WEATHER APPROPRIATE CLOTHING - Spring in Washington means unpredictable showers, so please be advised to keep extra clothes in your car or bag just in case. CLOSED-TOE SHOES - Preferably ones you don't mind getting dirty and will stay dry in case of rain. Rain boots work well - we are on pretty flat ground. A GREAT ATTITUDE - Let's have some fun while learning about our urban forests! WATER BOTTLE There is no water source directly on site, the nearest is a short 5 minute walk. **Gloves will be provided, but feel free to bring your favorite pair!**
