Warren G. Magnuson Park - Magnuson Reforestation02/24/2024


Work with a team of UW restoration ecology students to restore what had been a denuded naval air station to healthy habitat which will increase human wellbeing and ecosystem services. (We'll be working where some of the runways shown in the listing photo once were).

Work will include removing invasive plants like blackberry and ivy and small diameter invasive trees and might include spreading wood chips. This work is to prepare for later planting.

This event is also an opportunity for participants to enjoy nature and learn a bit about native plants while doing satisfying work.
