Volunteer in honor of Love Parks Day Aug. 15

It’s like a Valentine for the trees.

Join Seattle Parks Foundation and EarthCorps for Love Parks Day on Friday, Aug. 15! Show your appreciation for the City’s park system by volunteering in Cheasty Greenspace.

Volunteers will remove invasive plants and spread woodchip mulch to prepare areas of the park for winter planting. Invasive plants like English ivy and Himalayan blackberry can outcompete native plants and interrupt the balance and cycle of a healthy, functioning forest.

 

All volunteers will receive a t-shirt, water bottle and lunch. Small and large groups are welcome. For more information and to sign up to volunteer, please visit https://www.seattleparksfoundation.org/2014-pages/get-out/2014-event-registration-love-parks-day.
