Please note - this event is full, any sign-ups will be added to our waiting list.
Join us in celebrating Earth Day in Snoqualmie by volunteering. We will be caring for Mother Earth by removing aggressive weeds that threaten our community's forest at Jeanne Hansen Community Park. This park has had some large patches of aggressive blackberries and has seen a massive transformation since volunteers started working here in 2019. We need help to ensure this forested area continues on the path toward recovery.
This event will happen in two 2-hour shifts, one at 9:00am, and one at 11:00am.
Due to the pandemic and public safety, our events will not be greater than 10 volunteers and you must sign up ahead of time to join us; walk-up volunteers will be turned away.
Gloves, tools, and instruction provided. Family-friendly.
Green Snoqualmie Partnership Vision: A city with healthy forests that provide high-value habitat for wildlife and access for residents and visitors to experience nature, supported by an aware and engaged community that is working together to restore and care for these lands.

NONE OF THESE DAYS WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP
Forterra's mission is to act with immediacy to protect, enhance and steward our region's most precious resources--its communities and its landscapes. Since 1989, we have been working toward a future in which our children and grandchildren can experience nature in and around our urban environments.
Forterra conserves land by working with individuals, companies and local governments. We strive to maximize the ecological value of land, while meeting the needs of landowners. We may accept land as a donation, purchase it, or transfer it to public ownership. We often serve as a broker to identify and negotiate the most effective ownership to protect important lands. We establish conservation easements to preserve special features. For each and every property, we explore available strategies or create new ones to provide permanent protection. Forterra has established a Conservation Agenda for our region, with specific priorities and methods for each type of landscape. Current initiatives include the protection of working forests on the foothills of the Cascades, and the creation of salmon sanctuaries along our region's highest quality rivers and streams.
