Volunteers are needed to help restore beautiful North SeaTac Park’s forest this Sunday, Mar. 20, 2021, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

“Please join us tomorrow in North SeaTac Park’s Enchanted Grove – an area that, for more than a year, volunteers have been transforming from an ocean of ivy, blackberry, & litter to the forest of Douglas Fir and Madrones that it should be. This is work that really matters.”

At the March 6th work party, volunteers planted 70 baby trees where once there were only weeds. If you’ve been working at this site in the past but haven’t seen it for a while, expect to see a dramatic transformation.

There’s also a forest rescue event next Sunday from 3-5 at the S. 136th St. and Des Moines Memorial Dr. S. location. For that event, check out https://seatac.greencitypartnerships.org.

The weather forecast looks good! Temperatures in the low 40s and a low chance of rain. Only 7 people are registered – and 20 can come – so there’s plenty of room for you. Registration is required. Online (by tonight) or in-person both work well.

“See you under the trees!”
