Genesee Park and Playfield - North Genesee Forest Restoration04/20/2024


Come celebrate Earth Day by spending a couple hours enjoying and restoring the Genesee forest. Increasing our tree canopy cover is one way we can protect our neighborhood against the extreme heat of climate change. It's also a way we can work for social justice, as South Seattle has been a historically green-poor area. We'll be pulling ivy as well as protecting our new baby plants with buckets and buckets of mulch.

All ages OK

9 out of 15 participants registered.

What to Bring

Dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes you don't mind getting muddy. Bring a water bottle or travel mug--we'll provide some snacks.

Where to Meet

Meet in the forest on the east side of the Genesee Meadow. From the gravel parking lot, walk north, towards the lake, past the picnic shelter towards the trail kiosk. The site is just to the east of the kiosk. (if you are by the soccer fields you are in the wrong part of the park!)

Where to Park

Park in the gravel lot next to the Parks maintenance building on the north side of Genesee St. or along the perimeter of the park on 43rd Ave. S. The 50 bus will drop you in the same place.
