About

Come help restore North Creek Forest and fight climate change during our Earth Day event on April, 15th from 10:00am to 1:00pm! Forest stewardship, interpretive walks, and food are all planned for the day! All ages and experience levels are welcome!

We will be working at the 112th Ave. Restoration Sites on the East side of North Creek Forest. Our forest restoration activities will be mulching, removing invasive weeds, like Himalayan blackberry, morning glory, and reed canary grass, and picking up trash! Mulching will help reduce erosion, invasive weed growth, and add nutrients into the soil. Removing invasive weeds will make more room for native plants to grow and thrive, and removing trash will create a more beautiful park!

Our forest educators will also be leading multiple interpretive walk & talks through parts of North Creek Forest.

Friends of North Creek Forest will provide training, tools, gloves, snacks, and refreshments for all volunteers, as well as some more substantial food at the event's end!
