Something to Care For in Discovery Park

April 19, 10am-12:30pm @ Discovery Park

Our planet is under stress! Species are going extinct, habitats are collapsing, and resources are becoming scarcer. It's overwhelming, to say the least, and it often feels like nobody cares - but I know YOU do. That's why you're here, looking for an opportunity to volunteer, looking for something to care for, and looking for people who care as much as you do. Discovery Park needs people who care. Our forests provide many services for our community – rain water absorption and filtration, oxygen production, wildlife habitat, and vibrant spaces for connection! Working together, we will restore Discovery Park back to a healthy forest that can support a diversity of plants and wildlife. We will teach you how to identify and remove invasive species and how to maintain areas where these weeds have been extracted. Removing aggressive weeds like English Ivy and Himalayan Blackberry will create space for native Pacific Northwest plants. Everyone is welcome – no experience necessary. more
