About

ABOUT THIS EVENT:

Join EarthCorps and the Green Redmond Partnership as we work in Idylwood Park! The plan for the day is to plant trees and shrubs along the edges of Idylwood Creek. The creek runs through the park and then out to Lake Sammamish and is home to Kokanee salmon and cutthroat trout. The work you will be doing will help protect the stream and make it a healthier place for local fish, other wildlife, and park visitors.

FOR YOUR SAFETY AND COMFORT, PLEASE BRING:

  • Clothing that can get dirty (because it will!) including long pants and a long sleeve shirt (helps protect against prickly plants)
  • Sturdy shoes that can handle some mud (closed toed shoes are required: work boots, hiking boots, or running shoes are all fine)
  • Snacks
  • Full water bottle
Remember to check the weather and bring appropriate layers and raingear/sun wear if needed.

PROVIDED FOR YOU:
  • Tools
  • Gloves
  • Water, coffee & snacks
