Start your weekend off with some refreshing outdoor activity as we remove blackberry and other weeds from the Blix open space in Eastside. This small garden helps filter stormwater runoff from the nearby roads and beautify important green stormwater infrastructure.

Tools, gloves, and instruction will be provided. This event is open to people of all ages and abilities.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting the size of this event to 20 people, so make sure to register and save your spot!

About Forterra

Location:

901 5th Avenue, Suite 2200, Seattle, WA 98164, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
