The volunteers will focus on maintenance work such as removing leaves and wood chips from around each plant and removing the blackberry vines and other invasive plants that are coming up in the previously planted areas. We may also clear new parts of the site. Every volunteer will be making an important contribution to making this land a beautiful forest once again.Come join the fun!

What to Bring

Wear clothes and close toed boots/shoes that will keep you warm, dry and that you don't mind getting dirty. Bring rain gear (if there is a possibility of rain) and a water bottle. Gloves and tools will be provided.

Where to Meet

The entrance to the site is from the Hanford Stairs which are east of the intersection of 25th Avenue S and S Hanford ((98144 -Beacon Hill) From there walk halfway down the stairs; there will be signs that will direct you to the work area. (You can use 3212 25th Ave S on your GPS. The stairs are at the north end of that block)

You can also reach this site by light rail. (Get off of the Mt. Baker station. The road to the south of the station is Winthrop although there isn't a sign that says that. Turn right when you get to the road. The road will curve and become Cheasty Blvd. Keep walking as the road will go past the Hanford Stairs. There will be an event sign showing you where to turn to go up the stairs.) Give yourself extra time to get here if you come by light rail.
