Help Us Grow Our Forest at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park

August 20, 9am-12pm @ Richmond Beach Saltwater Park

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! more

Join Us--Weekly Sunday Work Party!

August 21, 9am-12pm @ Twin Ponds Park

Join Jim, Gary and Yoshiko on Sunday mornings at Twin Ponds Park! We see different wildlife with the changing seasons and that inspires us to nurture the natural areas of Twin Ponds Park. This summer, we will focus on preparing the area near Meridian Creek for planting in late fall. We pull out invasives, love OM, and install native plants for the birds and beasts to enjoy. Please note this is restricted to adults. Please do not bring anyone under 18. Thank you. more

Shoreline Park Work Party

August 21, 10am-12pm @ Shoreline Park

Please join us in keeping the small forest of Shoreline Park beautiful! We're dreaming of a park free of invasive plants and filled with native plants. Work areas are manageable, and we think we can really make a difference in just a few years. On this day, we'll be cutting and digging out Himalayan blackberry and working to preserve the trailing blackberry, salal, ferns, bleeding heart, and other native plants already thriving. If we love this park, it will love us right back! more
