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 RestoreTwinPondsSouth@outlook.com
