Cub Scout Pack 64 learns proper root arrangement for strong plants.
A lot of new people have joined us this springs to support restoration and stewardship. And a lot of people return for almost every event. Now we are going to bring them all together in one big push to meet the spring planting schedule.
The National Park Service required a anthropological study of this part of the forest prior to releasing funds to the City of Bothell to purchase it. Students had to wait for the study to be completed before planting could begin. Now it is a race to get plant roots established before the heat of summer arrives.
The exciting part: The National Park Service is part of our conservation effort (Land and Water Grant).
Linda Cung and FNCF Board Member Cathy Garrard.
The other exciting part: we are going to win the race to plant on time.
BBQ and MAJOR PLANTING EVENT

[We have a lot of gloves but if you have favorite pair you can bring your own.]
Linda has been on more UWREN and FNCF restoration efforts than almost any other volunteer. Cathy has been increasingly involved "out in the field". She is also a founding board member of FNCF.
John Pearson (far left in photo) showed up on this English holly event in February and has been coming back almost every Saturday to help out.
