Join Friends of North Beach Park for some post-Thanksgiving green calories on Saturday, November 28, 2015. We’ll meet at the main entrance to the park, 24th Ave and 90th St. NW. The work party will run from 9 a.m. to noon, rain or shine.
We’ll be planting in different areas in the main body of the park. The plants we have range from small groundcover to giant conifers (well, they will be giant conifers in a couple decades). We will also transport mulch down to the sites using wheelbarrows and buckets.
Here is a complete list:
|Abies grandis||grand fir|
|Acer macrophyllum||bigleaf maple|
|Asarum caudatum||wild ginger|
|Blechnum spicant||deer fern|
|Dicentra formosa||Pacific bleeding heart|
|Juncus acuminatus||tapertip rush|
|Myrica californica||Pacific wax myrtle|
|Prunus emarginata var. mollis||bitter cherry|
|Tiarella trifoliata||threeleaf foamflower|
We’ll provide tools, gloves, and guidance. Please wear weather appropriate layers that can get dirty. Rain gear will be helpful; expect late-November weather, whatever that means these days. Even in cool weather, it’s a good idea to bring some water and a snack.
Please sign up in advance at the Green Seattle Partnership Cedar website so we know you’re coming.
All ages are welcome; volunteers under 18 must sign and bring a waiver (link next to the sign-up form). The #48 and #40 buses stop a few blocks south of the park; check Metro for details. Parking is available on 90th St. east of 24th Ave.
Can’t make the work party? Help out the Green Seattle Partnership by taking the 20 Year Plan Update Community Survey. In order to guide the update to the GSP 20 Year Strategic Plan, we have a NEW survey that is targeted towards regular volunteers and/or non-volunteers. This survey is looking to gather information on how GSP can support volunteerism citywide.
Here is some more on the Green Seattle 10 Year Update.
And as always, you can support Friends of North Beach Park by making a directed donation to the Seattle Parks Foundation.
All money donated will be used to fund the restoration efforts of North Beach Park.
