North SeaTac Park - Third Sunday at North …09/18/2022

Host: Community

Activities

Help restore beautiful North SeaTac Park's forest! Volunteers have been transforming this site - nicknamed "The Enchanted Glade" since fall of 2020. A thick mat of ivy covering the ground and the trunks of Douglas Fir and Madrones - along with blackberry vines entangling the lower branches of trees - has been cleared in a large area. Native plants are beginning to regrow and, in a nearby field, native conifer tree seedlings have been planted.

We will focus on removing blackberry and ivy that has re-emerged in areas that were already cleared and applying mulch to prevent re-growth. Special attention will be given to protecting the recently-planted trees Come learn some restoration basics and help out your community. This is work that matters!
