Thanks for your interest in volunteering with GSP! However, as Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Green Seattle Partnership work to do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 to the most vulnerable individuals, we are cancelling volunteer programs starting March 13 and going through April 13. Please continue to check back here for updated information and opportunities to get involved as soon as we are cleared to restart volunteer events. If you have any other questions during this time regarding volunteering, please reach out to info@greenseattle.org.

East Duwamish GS: S Chicago St - East Duwamish Work Party01/18/2020

Activities

Help take care of the forest along this neighborhood trail! Depending on the time of the year, we'll be pulling ivy, grubbing blackberry roots, planting new native plants, or mulching; but always having a good time! Work party regulars include naturalists who are happy to answer your questions about the birds, beasts, shrubs, and trees that live in the East Duwamish. You can check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/eastduwamish

Open to the public

All ages OK

5 out of 20 volunteers registered.

What to Bring

Dress for work and weather: long pants, long-sleeved shirts, closed-toed shoes or boots, and a rain jacket. Tools and gloves will be provided, but bring some snacks and a water bottle.

Where to Meet

The forest is located along 39th Ave S, between S Cloverdale and S Trenton Streets in South Beacon Hill/Rainier Beach. Use 8631 39th Ave S as an approximate address for the upper trail entrance. We will meet at the upper entrance by the yellow fire hydrant, but if you arrive late, just follow the trail and look for us in the woods. The forest is a short walk from bus stops or light rail. If arriving by light rail, use address 4005 S Trenton St, which will take you to the lower trail entrance, then take the trail uphill.

Where to Park

Limited parking is available adjacent to the site along 39th Ave S, and more parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood.
