Brugger's Bog Restoration 12/15

Brugger's Bog Work Parties

Brugger's Bog: 9am to 1pm
2nd Sundays:  9/15, 10/13, 11/10, 12/15


WHO: Individuals, families, and community groups under the guidance of the City of Shoreline’s Master Stewards – trained by the Washington Native Plant Society.

WHAT: Perform environmental restoration in Shoreline’s forested parks. Rip out invasive weeds and plant native plants!


WHY: Urban forests contribute to environmental, social, and economic well-being.
• Urban forests promote human wellness
• Improved air quality and mitigated wind effects
• Reduction in stormwater runoff and erosion, which ameliorates flooding issues
• Increased shade and cooling for fish-bearing streams, such as Thornton Creek
• Enhancement of wildlife habitat
• Increase in property values

No Experience necessary – just bring your enthusiasm and determination for community-engaged restoration. Gloves, tools, light snacks, water, and warm drinks will be provided.

Please bring a water bottle (for refills), a bigger snack or lunch, tough shoes and clothes that can get muddy, and layers for the weather. We work rain or shine!
RSVP (for shovel and snack counts!) to or to Joy at (206) 963-5704
