Kiwanis Memorial Preserve Park - Heron Habitat Helpers 2019 ...03/16/2019
Come help us get native plants in the ground as we continue restoring habitat in Kiwanis Ravine wildlife refuge! We've gotten lots of native shrubs and trees established, and now we're adding understory plants as ecological succession of the plant community proceeds. We'll likely do some weeding-out of invasive species to start, then plant bunchberry, wild ginger, Oregon grape and ferns.
Kiwanis ravine is home to numerous bird species, amphibians, mountain beavers, and other wildlife, and it's an important green buffer for the great blue heron nesting colony at the Ballard Locks. We'll go view the colony before we begin; it's near our meeting point.
