Saturday, November 2nd, 9am-12pm
We're happy to collaborate with Green Seattle for an earth stewardship service project. Our school will help this year at the Duwamish location, just over the West Seattle bridge.
Our friends at GS have reserved up to 20 spaces for our community to join in the action. "Join the fun at East Duwamish Greenspace and be one of hundreds of volunteers planting native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that will become the future forest of Seattle. All community members are welcome, and no experience is necessary! The event is family friendly and open to all ages."
You don't have to register but we want to give the site leader an idea of people to prepare supplies. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with "SGD" in the subject line and the number of people you are bringing. Look for our school garden coordinator, Andrea Hildebrandt, who will be wearing our school colors, at the site when you arrive. Hope to see you there QAE. It's a great way to give back!
What to Bring
Come dressed for the weather (rain or shine) in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes (rubber boots, hiking shoes or boots), long sleeves, long pants, warm layers and rain jacket. We'll have tools and gloves for you to use, as well as coffee, water, and a mid-morning snack. Help reduce waste by bringing your own refillable coffee mug/water bottle if you have one.
Where to Meet
Use 8631 39th Ave S as an approximate address for the upper trail entrance, and contact us if you need directions. The forest is located along 39th Ave S, between S Cloverdale and S Trenton Streets in South Beacon Hill. We will meet at the entrance by the yellow fire hydrant, but if you arrive late, just follow the trail and look for us in the woods. The forest is a short walk from bus stops or light rail.
Where to Park
Limited parking is available adjacent to the site along 39th Ave S, and more parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood.
