North Beach Park Work Party!

Saturday, July 28, 9 a.m. to Noon

Meet at the entrance to the park, at NW 90th St. and 24th Ave. NW.
There is parking north and east of the park.
We’ll provide tools, gloves, and guidance.
Please wear sturdy shoes and clothes that can get dirty.

As always, our goals are to be safe, have some fun, and get some work done.

There are two fallen alders along the main trail that require some attention. One is heavily infested with ivy, and needs to have some of the ivy removed from it to prevent rerooting. This is a very wet, confined space; only two people can work there. The other fallen alder is not infested with ivy, but the crown has landed in the shrub layer and needs to be cleaned up a bit. Last but not least, the entrance needs some maintenance and monitoring attention.

Please join us. It’s a great opportunity to get some exercise, meet new people, and get hands-on experience in not only what makes Seattle great, but to directly help make it greater.

Art in the Garden: And if you can’t join us at the work party, please join us at Art in the Garden, Saturday, August 4, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. We’ll have a table with information about North Beach Park, Green Seattle Partnership, and other parks in the neighborhood you can help out at.

Art in the Garden is in the Ballard P-Patch, at 85th St. and 25th Ave. NW, just west of Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church. It’s a very pleasant neighborhood fair with a beer and sausage tent, bluegrass music, some craft and vendor booths, and a p-patch in full bloom. Our booth will be near the sound stage. Just look for the Green Seattle Partnership banner.

Here is a link with more information.

Hope to see you at one of these events!
