Welcome Summer to North Beach Park!

Welcome summer to North Beach Park Saturday, June 22. We’ll concentrate on building ivy platforms to prepare for the EarthCorps work party in July. If enough people show up, we’ll send an expeditionary force into the park to do a survival ring or two. But come see the park in its summer splendor. It’s like a jungle!

Here are the usual details:

Saturday, June 22, 9 a.m. to noon
Meet at the main entrance to the park, NW 90th St. and 24th Ave. N. Parking is available east of 24th on 90th. Wear weather-appropriate layers that can get dirty and mud boots. We’ll provide tools, gloves, and guidance. Bring snacks and water if you need them. North Beach Park has no facilities. All ages welcome, but children must be kept under supervision of their parent or guardian.

And to help your plans, here are the known dates we’ll be working in the ravine for the rest of the summer:

Saturday, July 13 — EarthCorps returns for the 2nd of four big work parties. They bring coffee, snacks, a port-a-potty, and lots of great enthusiasm. They’ll be doing the major ivy pulling this year. The 3rd work party will also concentrate on ivy removal, but the 4th work party will be a planting spectacular in the fall.

Saturday, July 27 — the regular Friends of North Beach Park 4th Saturday work party. We’ll be concentrating on survival rings for trees deep in the park. This could be adventurous! The hours are slightly different, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Saturday, August 24 — Friends of North Beach Park 4th Saturday work party.

We hope to see you one of these days! As an added enticement, it’s several degrees cooler in the ravine. ;>
