Earth Day in Dr. Jose Rizal Park

April 22, 10am-3pm @ Dr. Jose Rizal Park

We'll clean up the slope with one of the grandest views of Seattle, prepping the area for a trail improvement project selected by citizens in the Your Vote, Your Voice project of Parks and SDOT. We'll remove some ivy and blackberries, plus cut back suckers from big leaf maples, so opening lines of visions into the woods and orchard of the park, while also improving public safety. We'll spread woodchips as mulch around previously planted and well established evergreens, and may put a few survival rings in place, too. The apple trees and flowering shrubs will be in bloom, and we may expect to see and hear many songbirds. We'll create a pile of cut brush that songbirds can access for nesting materials in the area, too. All tools will be provided. more
