Thank you to the Church members, UW Bothell students, high school Honor Society students, and community members who came together on the last Saturday in February to restore a part of North Creek Forest!
At the end of the day, 32 volunteers helped spread 15 cubic feet of mulch, dug up 5 cubic feet of Himalayan blackberry and English ivy, and removed an existing 4 cubic feet of rubbish from this year’s restoration site. Re-mulching the access trail and a large patch of mud helped provide access to the edge of this year’s restoration site, which will enable future volunteers to plant native trees, shrubs, and grasses in those hard to reach locations.
The restoration site is coming along well, and the Forest is looking healthier by the day thanks to all the volunteers and donors who make the restoration projects possible!
Interested in joining us? Come on out on Saturday, March 12th from 10:00am -2:00pm. We will be partnering with Bartlett Tree Service’s Trees for Tomorrow program to plant some native plants that day! Also, please consider joining us for our Earth Day event on Saturday, April 23rd from 10:00am – 2:00pm. As always, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Greg, at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
