    Join DIRT Corps in revitalizing Westcrest Park.
    We are working on the parcel of land next to 8th Ave, and it is
    overgrown with Himalayan blackberries! It's up to us and our volunteers to
    bring it under control! 
    The beginning of this volunteer event will
    include a brief weed ID. Combine knowledge with action as we work to clear this
    beautiful space of harmful species that overtakes the area. Many of you might
    already have this experience in your own backyard!
    Let’s work together to gradually transform and
    maintain Westcrest Park and make it a great public space for everyone to enjoy.
    Let us know of any questions, hope to see you out there!

    Join King Conservation District and
    Duwamish Alive Coalition and celebrate Earth Day with Duwamish Alive! Become a champion for our Puget Sound Orca and
    urban wildlife by helping improve our natural habitat sites which support the
    salmon that Orca depend upon. The Green-Duwamish Watershed is home to 5 
    species of salmon which spawn in its streams and creeks including the
    threatened Chinook Salmon that are the primary food for the Southern Resident
    Orca.  By helping to improve and maintain the health of our natural areas,
    you are also improving the air and water quality throughout our watershed.
     


    We will be working at a buffer habitat
    restoration site along Longfellow Creek in West Seattle. The exact location of
    the event will be provided after registration.
     



    The event will be held outdoors, so please dress
    for the weather and wear clothes and closed-toe shoes/boots that you don’t mind
    getting wet and muddy.
     



    Tools, gloves, water, hot beverages, and snacks
    will be provided. Please bring water bottle, travel mug, and lunch.


    All ages and experience welcome!
