Another busy month for North Beach Park: EarthCorps 9/14, Friends of North Beach Park 9/28, and Sustainable Ballard 9/29! We hope to see you at one of these events.
EarthCorps at North Beach Park: Saturday, September 14, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
EarthCorps begins four fall work parties by moving into some new territory. We’ll continue removing ivy and blackberry in a more mixed plant community than previous work parties. There is a lunch break at noon, so bring a sandwich. To sign up, visit their volunteer calendar and click on the North Beach even for Sept. 14th. (And if you’re planning ahead, future EarthCorps events are scheduled for Oct. 12 and 23 and Nov. 2)
Friends of North Beach Park: Saturday, September 28, 9 a.m. to Noon.
Join us on the 4th Saturday to help make North Beach Park a better park and Seattle a better city. We provide tools, gloves and guidance. You bring a willingness to play in the woods. For registration and further details, please visit the Green City Partnerships website.
Details for both events
Meet at the main entrance to the park, 90th St. and 24th Ave. NW. Wear sturdy shoes or mud boots and weather-appropriate layers that can get dirty. We provide tools, gloves, and guidance; the work ranges from light gardening to pretty vigorous. All ages and skill levels are welcome, but children must be kept under parental/guardian supervision at all times. Bring water and snacks as you need them. EarthCorps provides a portapotty, but there are no permanent facilities in North Beach Park. Parking is available on 90th St. east of 24th. The #61 bus goes past the park, and routes #40 and #48 stop at 85th and 24th. Check Metro KC route planner for further information.
