Cheasty GS: Cheasty Blvd - 3rd Saturday Cheasty Main …02/17/2024

Activities

Join us for a relaxing and rewarding morning in nature as we help restore a wetland and a forest! We will be planting native grasses, shrubs, and trees in seasonal wetlands that have been cleared of invasive blackberry bushes by volunteers like you and the Seattle Parks Natural Areas Crews. This work helps reduce the urban heat island effect in South Seattle and improve habitat for birds such as the resident cooper hawk and screech owl. We will be working in two areas: the Sprucelands and the Skunk Cabbage trail, which have recently been prepared by the Seattle Park natural areas crew. This makes our planting much easier and more enjoyable.
