THERE IS A PILE OF MULCH behind the one you can see.
The UW-REN Team and volunteers moved a lot of it last Saturday. What a group! People from local, state and federal government; UW students/faculty; neighbors and kids.
Unfortunately everyone was working and didn't take much time to take pictures so we are thin on those. Not everyone is represented in a photo.
The Team: Teppei Sato, Elliott Church, Darryl Nevels, Danee Moesch, Sarah Witte, Freddie Hensen
The Team was organized. Upon arrival we could pick from one of three stations.
1) pull blackberry roots
2) water every plant on site
3) deliver and spread mulch 6-8 inches deep
We took breaks for a variety of group photos, food, beverage and Dan Paquette led people on a local botanical tour while Sarah Witte showed visitors around the site.
What is hidden is the enormous amount of work the team did. We will publish their final report very soon.
Linda Cung, Mandy Knudtson and Yara Khalaf on a short break.

FRIENDS OF NORTH CREEK FOREST SUMMER ACTIVITY
First we must complete our contribution to the next Land and Water grant application.
Second: We have interns, students of perpetual energy and interest. We do our best to feed their thirst for forest education.
Third: We must begin serious fund raising for a staff person. Volunteers can only do so much before quality suffers.
Want to help? Drop an email and let's talk!
Thanks for the great Spring!
