Work party to save Colonnade and its redwoods from invasive plants

June 20, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Invasive vines and brush are overwhelming the Park Department’s I-5 Colonnade Open Space, including the grand California redwoods. Volunteers are needed Wed., June 20, for a work party, 9 a.m. to noon to help weed (come for whichever part of that period you can). We’ll meet at Colonnade’s west entrance near the corner of Franklin Ave. E. and E. Blaine St., by the north end of the off-leash area.

Employers are encouraged to authorize employees to spend part of that work day “on the clock” restoring some of the tallest trees in Seattle. While pre-registration is not required, ECC would be grateful to hear from employers who are participating and their estimates of numbers, so we can arrange enough tools for everybody. Participants are asked to bring drinking water, gloves and sturdy shoes – and if you have long-handled pruners or a saw, so much the better.
