April is turning out to be a special month in North Beach Park. As well as starting our third year of restoration, there are some interesting events happening. Here is a listing of the events so far.
On Sunday, April 7, join us for the Groundswell NW Annual Meeting at Sunset Hill Community Center, 3003 NW 66th St. The event will be from 6 to 8 p.m., and feature guest speakers such as Pomegranate Center Founder Milenko Matanovic. Also speaking is Groundswell NW board member Dawn Hemminger on “How to Grow a Park.” Representatives of Groundswell NW-sponsored projects (such as North Beach Park!) will be there. Bring treats to share for the potluck.
On Saturday, April 13, join EarthCorps for the first of four sponsored work parties that will happen throughout the year. We’ll be doing a little late-season planting, but also transporting mulch from the entrance down into the park to make it more accessible. EarthCorps events happen from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. EarthCorps provides tools, gloves, guidance, a lot of information, snacks, and great fun. We’ll see you there! To sign up, go to the EarthCorps website and select the North Beach Park event for April 13.
Last but not least, of course, is our regular work party on Saturday, April 27, 9 a.m. to noon. We’re still cooking up details, but it’s sure to be something special.
Spring is a great time to visit the park, with all the leaves budding out and some of the early bloomers showing off their colors. Lots of bird song and bright emerald green.
