About

Removing blackberry isn’t glamorous work, but your work helps us restore and maintain the forests that make this region special. We’ll bring the snacks and coffee, you bring your friends and neighbors and we’ll work to improve the health of this forest tucked away in an Everett neighborhood.

Forest restoration activities: Remove invasive non-native plants such as English ivy and Himalayan blackberry.

What to bring: Come dressed to work outside (rain or shine) with sturdy shoes. Bring a water bottle or coffee cup. We will provide coffee, refreshments, and light snacks, plus tools and work gloves.

Where to meet: This park is a little hidden gem at the end of 109th St. SE, east of 7th Ave SE. Look for the kiosk and picnic table where 109th St. SE ends. There is street parking in the neighborhood adjacent to the park

Youth volunteers: If you are under 18 and attending the event without a parent or guardian, please come to the event with a Youth Waiver signed by a parent or guardian. The Green Everett Partnership youth release waiver can be found here.

Please RSVP for the event by contacting greeneverett@forterra.org / 425-238-0065

The Green Everett Partnership Vision: Healthy forested parklands supported by an aware and engaged community in which individuals, neighborhoods, nonprofits, businesses, and city government are all working together to protect and maintain their valuable public resources.
