North Beach Park November Work Party

Saturday, November 23, 9 a.m. to Noon: Join us for the last work party of 2013 and a planting celebration. We have 200 trees, shrubs, ferns, and ground cover, including many plants being reintroduced to the park. These plants will provide food for insects and birds, and the different bloom times give the park a long-lasting visual texture. So come on down to build up your appetite for Thanksgiving with some green calories!

Register for this work party at the Green Seattle Partnership Cedar website. Please register in advance so we know how many shovels and buckets to provide.

We’ll meet at the main entrance to the park, 24th Ave and 90th St. NW. Wear weather-appropriate layers that can get dirty and sturdy shoes or mud boots. We’ll provide tools, gloves, and guidance. Bring water and a snack as you need them but there are no facilities at the park. All ages and skill levels are welcome, but children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Events happen rain or shine, but if it’s VERY windy, we might cancel at the last minute.

There is parking on 90th St., east of 24th Ave. The #61 bus stops across the street from the park, and the 40 and 48 stop at 85th and 24th; check Metro for details.

Can’t join us for a work party? Make a year-end donation to Seattle Parks Foundation to support restoration efforts at North Beach Park. Visit their website and click on the “Donate” button. Your tax-deductible donation will be used for tools, materials, and outreach.
