Richmond Beach Saltwater Park - Dig In at Richmond …10/16/2021

Activities

Start your weekend with panoramic views of Puget Sound and the Olympia Mountains while we take care of native habitat restoration areas. Many thanks go to students in the University of Washington’s Restoration Ecology Network program who planted these areas. We'll be watering thirsty plants and getting rid of invasive species. We’ll also show you our unique and water-saving irrigation system – and how you can set it up in your own gardens to save water and keep your plants healthy.
We start early to beat the heat! No experience is necessary; just an interest in having fun while protecting native habitat. We provide all of the tools and work gloves, but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish. We appreciate everyone who comes to help us restore nearshore habitat at the park!

Open to the public

All ages OK

5 out of 10 volunteers registered.

What to Bring

A water bottle, a snack if you want one, and tough clothes and shoes that can get dirty (because they will!), including long pants and a long-sleeved shirt to protect against prickly blackberry. Closed-toed shoes are required: work boots or hiking boots are best as we work on sloping ground. Running shoes are also fine, but we'll be working in a wetland area so they will get wet. Remember to check the weather and bring appropriate layers and rain gear or sun protection as needed.

Where to Meet

Please meet in the lower parking lot by the rest rooms. Look for the table registration area.
