Give back to public lands and help restore the Arboretum on Earth Day!
Once again, the Arboretum Foundation is partnering with the Student Conservation Association (SCA), UW Botanic Gardens, and Seattle Parks and Recreation to organize a work service event at the Arboretum on Earth Day.
WHEN: Saturday, April 20th, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
WHERE: Washington Park Arboretum, 2300 Arboretum Drive East, Seattle, WA 98112. (#43 or #48 bus to 24th Ave East at Lynn Street.) Meet at Crabapple Meadow, just south of the Graham Visitors Center.
WHAT: Volunteers will restore the Arboretum through spreading mulch, removing invasive weeds, and maintaining trails.
BRING WITH YOU: Please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes, preferably work boots or sturdy sneakers, and bring a reusable water bottle. The event will take place rain or shine, so please dress appropriately for the weather!
PROVIDED: Coffee and snacks will be provided for all volunteers, as well as project materials and gloves.
KID FRIENDLY: Volunteers of all ages are welcome! For young children, we will have a work area close to the check-in station at Crabapple Meadow, where they will be able to have fun pulling weeds such as ivy and buttercups and/or mulching (under the supervision of their care givers).
FREE LIGHT LUNCH: Stick around and enjoy a free light lunch on Crabapple Meadow, courtesy of the SCA.
