Do you have a green-ish thumb and would like to beautify a small but important area in your neighborhood? There are some remaining City of Kirkland traffic circles that are in need of a dedicated volunteer Steward to keep them healthy, nice-looking and devoid of line-of-site obstructions. As a Traffic Circle Steward, you maintain your assigned circle with regular weeding, trimming and de-littering. We furnish you with a safety vest and can help with plant debris disposal. Stewards average about 4 hours per month, mostly March through October. We do ask a volunteer commitment of at least one year.
Traffic Circles in need of adoption:
South Juanita Neighborhood: 104th Ave NE / NE 118th Place (pending adoption) South Juanita Neighborhood: 104th Ave NE / NE 121st Street (pending adoption) South Rose Hill: NE 73rd Street/ 130th Ave NE
