It’s that time of year again for volunteers to head down to Thornton Creek and help plant trees and clear out non-native plants. The Kingfisher Natural Area (KFNA) has had a terrific year thanks to the Maple Leaf-Victory Heights community and Green Seattle Partnership (GSP)! They’ve clocked over 200 volunteer hours during Fall 2013 and planted over 200 native plants and trees throughout the park with help from neighbors, local Boy Scouts, and Nathan Hale students.
Here are the dates and links to sign up:
Meet at the job box just inside the park on the Victory Heights side at NE 104th and 17th Ave NE. Dress in layers for the weather. Wear sturdy shoes — waterproof is always good. Long sleeves and long pants are recommended. Bring a personal water bottle if you have one. Snacks provided.
Volunteer hours are recorded and tracked providing GSP with community match for grants and our park with tools, plants, mulch, and other resources. (The more volunteer activity we post, the more resources our GSP-supported Natural Area receives.)
