Magnuson Reforestation

June 28, 9am-12pm @ Warren G. Magnuson Park

Help improve habitat and create replacement forest on a formerly denuded navy airfield. (Above photo taken in Navy era). The aim is to create healthy forest habitat and increase beneficial ecosystem services including provision of human enjoyment and health. It is also an opportunity to enjoy nature and learn a bit about native plants while doing satisfying work. Work is most likely to include removing invasive plants like ivy and blackberry but may also include other tasks such as distributing wood chip mulch or planting if plants are available. Because the work may be beyond capability of youth below high school age, please get the leader’s permission before registering if younger. more

Ravenna Park Watering & Weeding

June 29, 1pm-3pm @ Ravenna Park

Long ago, Ravenna Park was an old growth forest with a hot spring, salmon run, and a visitors lodge. It was considered a 'must see' for visitors of the Seattle area, but was later logged for firewood by a corrupt city official who pocketed the money. I and many other volunteers have spent years helping to restore the park to something closer to what it should be. Over the last few years, we've cleared and planted the area around the bridge, and this year I've got a cistern up on the hill. At this event we'll be maintaining the planted areas by watering and weeding, and thanks to the cistern, it'll be a lot easier than in prior yerars. more

Savanna Triangle blackberry expulsion

June 30, 9:30am-12:30pm @ Discovery Park

Even though we thought we got every root last work party, blackberry has a way of hiding until it warms up. But now they are showing themselves and are very easily dug up. We'll spread mulch wherever we disturb the soil to make sure that weed seeds don't have a chance to sprout. We'll take a tour of all the diversity planted in the site last fall and assess the transplant success. more
