April 6, 2012 - Friends of North Creek Forest and UW-REN students had an opportunity to address Professor Amy Lambert's Ecology class last Friday morning. That was followed by the largest tree planting day yet.
We had a total of 52 students, faculty and Friends on site. Trees, and shrubs "flew" into the ground. The cars just kept on coming and we were blessed with perfect weather for outdoor work... mild.
There were so many people we didn't have enough tools so we arranged forest tours and rotated the planting. Amy and students, You guys are awesome!
In case anyone doubted the potential for education and civic involvement... here's the answer.
What a team!
Do these people look like they are having a good time? The next opportunity for adding "your" trees to the forest is:
Friday (tomorrow) See Directions HERE
11:30 - 12:45
Cascade CC Professor Sadie Rosenthal is bringing her class in for some hands on restoration. Like last week, they will team up with UW-REN students and receive instruction on correct methods.
One year ago we were introducing the concept of the forest as a living laboratory, an education environment for students. Now it is in a reality. This happened because YOU spread the word. Please keep it up. We still have 23 acres to conserve.
