https://seattle.greencitypartnerships.org/event/21339/ ---------------------- Calling all eco-volunteers of the greater Seattle area! Let’s work together to gradually transform and maintain Westcrest Park into an even greater public space for everyone to enjoy. This June we'll be having our special "Pride With Pollinators" where our restoration will have an emphasis on the lovely pollinator garden and how it supports the local flora and fauna!

The beginning of this volunteer event will include a brief weed ID. Combine knowledge with action as we work to clear this beautiful space of harmful species that overtake the area. Many of you might already have this experience in your own backyard! WHAT TO WEAR
Please wear and bring with you what you will need to be comfortable spending a few hours working outside. Dress in layers for the weather, and consider bringing additional dry, insulating, or waterproof layers. Remember to bring water, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, or any other
accessories to protect yourself from the elements. Remember that blackberry thorns are sharp and can snag clothing, and that the terrain may be uneven and/or wet. We will provide gloves and tools! WHERE TO MEET: Please meet at the tool chest directly west of the Westcrest Park's P-patch.
