Warren G. Magnuson Park - Magnuson Reforestation04/07/2024


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 planting distributing wood chip mulch, and removing ivy, blackberry small invasive trees and shrubs.

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