Beaver Pond Natural Area Opportunity Fund Grant Community Meetings & Other Upcoming Events

We have a few events to share with you today. Seattle Parks has set the two
dates for the Beaver Pond Natural Area Opportunity Fund grant community
meetings. (As you may know, Thornton Creek Alliance has obtained a $500K
grant for this natural area east of Northgate Mall.) These meetings will be
your opportunity learn all about the plans so far and share your vision for
the park and what you would like to see improved. Please come if you can.
The more ideas we have on the table the better our project will be, and the
more valuable the park will be to the community! For more information about
the grant you can click here
