Westcrest Park - MLK Day of Service01/20/2020


Calling all eco-volunteers of the greater Seattle area! Let’s work together on this year's MLK Day of Service to transform and maintain Westcrest Park into an even greater public space for everyone to enjoy.

Dirt Corps leads volunteer parties at Westcrest every month. Get outside and learn about restoration methods while improving the health of a forested neighborhood park.

-We are working on the parcel of land next to 8th Ave, and it is overgrown with Himalayan blackberries! 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 to clear this beautiful space of harmful species that overtake the area. Many of you might already have this experience in your own backyard!

-Let us know of any questions, hope to see you out there!

-Acompaña a DIRT Corps a revitalizar el Parque Westcrest. Estamos trabajando en la tierra de la parcela de la 8a avenida del Parque Westcrest en donde la zarzamora está demasiado crecida! Está en nuestras manos como DIRT Corps y en la de los voluntarios el mantener el control del crecimiento de la zarzamora en este espacio!

-El inicio de este evento voluntario incluirá una breve introducción de plantas invasoras. Combina el conocimiento con la acción mientras trabajamos para limpiar este hermoso espacio de las plantas invasoras que lo dañan y lo van desplazando de él. Muchos de ustedes han experimentado esto en sus patios traseros en casa!

-Trabajemos juntos para transformar y mantener gradualmente el Parque Westcrest y hacer de él un espacio agradable al público para que todos puedan disfrutarlo. Déjanos saber si tienes alguna pregunta, esperamos verte ahí!
