North SeaTac Park - Fifth Sunday at North …05/29/2022

Host: Community Volunteers

Activities

Help transform a forest. North SeaTac Park is a 200+ urban oasis under the flight paths of SeaTac Airport. The trees here clean, quiet, and cool the air - true guardians of the community!

We'll be working in a corner of the park, under towering poplars and Douglas Fir, that was almost completely overrun with ivy that carpeted the ground and climbed the tree trunks until we began to transform it in early 2021. On Green SeaTac Day this fall, volunteers planted white pine, cedar, snowberries, fringe cup and more on the newly-cleared land here.

At this event, we'll continue to expand the cleared zone into adjoining areas and perhaps turn our attention to removing ivy from the trunks and around the base of nearby trees. This is work that matters!

Bring gardening gloves or hand tools (clippers especially), if you have them. No worries if not - we'll have some for you to use. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we won't have bottled water or snacks, so bring what you need!
