About

Join the Green Kirkland Partnership at our weekly event to help with the restoration of Juanita Bay Park East. This group meets 10am to 12pm at Juanita Bay Park EAST - on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month (Sept 2017 - March 2017)

Volunteers will spend the morning participating in restoration activities which may include removing non-native invasive plants like English ivy and Himalayan blackberry and spreading mulch over cleared areas. No experience is necessary and we encourage volunteers of all ages to join us! This event is lead by a Green Kirkland Park Steward and note this event does NOT meet at the main parking lot (see directions below).
