Kiwanis Memorial Preserve Park - Heron Habitat Helpers Restoration05/25/2024


Volunteer with Heron Habitat Helpers as we restore forest habitat for urban wildlife at the Stevens site - home to numerous bird species, amphibians, other wildlife, and an important green buffer for the great blue heron nesting colony at the Locks. An added benefit of re-establishing forested habitat is that long-lived trees remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere by capturing carbon and holding it in their wood for hundreds of years, provided they live. That's where we all make a difference...helping little trees survive to become giants! We'll remove weeds to help natives we've planted get established, and maybe work on trails. Learn to identify some native plants and what conditions they like to grow in as we work. For those interested - afterwards we'll visit the heron colony and if we're lucky, we'll see some of the newly hatched heron chicks.

No experience necessary. All welcome.

We have all the tools needed and light snacks.

Stay for a while - or the whole time!

Where to Park

There is ample free street parking. We recommend you park before heading down Brygger Drive as it is a dead end - parking is limited and it is difficult to turn around.

The bus 24 and 33 are nearby. Get off at the Shell station at the corner of Gov't Way and 34th Ave W.
