Genesee Park and Playfield - Green Seattle Day 2022 …10/29/2022

Host: O'Dea High School

Activities

Friends and students of O'Dea High School! Welcome to our community effort to restore the forested areas at the very south end of Genesee Park. We will be preparing the site for planting native plants by pulling out weeds like blackberry and ivy.

Help us create a healthier, happier, and greener Seattle by coming out to end Seattle Forest Week on Green Seattle Day! Lets improve wildlife habitat, combat climate change, and providing a place for community members to recreate.

Green Seattle Day is one of the best ways to give back to your neighbors, parks, and your local forest.

Check out SeattleForestWeek.org for more information on the celebration of Seattle’s forests during the week of October 22-29!
