Tree Planting Event

This opportunity is currently on hold since all City Parks are closed. HOWEVER, we do offer another opportunity at the New Start Community Garden which is not a City Park. Community Gardens are deemed "essential services" so they may remain open. Of course, we require social distancing of at least 6 feet, and this is doable, since there are many projects throughout the 1.6 acre garden.
Who are we? Weed Warriors work with cities and communities to reduce the negative impact of invasive, noxious weeds in public places, like parks, trails, and open spaces. We've adopted Mathison Park in Burien. We also work in Arbor Lake Park, Burien. We produce projects, workshops, events, and advocate for communities. The restoration project offers education about invasive weeds, methods for control or eradication, and provides opportunities where volunteers participate in "hands-on" restoration projects, improving the environmental health, and aesthetic and recreational qualities of our public places. We'd love to have you volunteer with us!
