Richmond Beach Saltwater Park - Help Us Grow Our …10/22/2022
Start your weekend with panoramic views of Puget Sound and the Olympia Mountains while helping to take care of native habitat restoration areas. We'll be watering thirsty native plantings and getting rid of invasive species. We’ll also show you our unique, inexpensive, 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’ll also point out any eagles and osprey that fly by!
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
3 out of 12 participants 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 water-proof shoes are best. 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.
