Today, Earthcorps, a non-profit that contracts with the City of Shoreline to do environmental restoration projects is beginning work on improving trails in Paramount Park Natural Area.

Earthcorps brings students from around the world to learn about environmental stewardship and
restoration practices.

They are being funded from the 2006 Parks, Open Space and Recreation Bond passed by Shoreline Voters.

The "Trails" section of that bond has been used to improve and build trails throughout the city since it was passed.

This trail leads from 10th Ave NE North of the park, down the hill to NE 148th, (which are both just discontinued roads now) and back over to 12th NE. 

This will improve the eroded trail and prevent some of the runoff from entering Littles Creek (we hope). 

The crossing over Littles Creek is dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians because of the overtopping that happens with heavy rains.

Let's hope this fix will last a while and make it a safer and more environmentally friendly trail.

Thanks for your help Earthcorps!!

Thanks so much to the City of Shoreline for these great improvements! Our crews reported back great accounts of these trail projects to all our staff last week, and we're glad to continue working together. -EarthCorps

The trail from the recent SAN article about a City-planned volunteer cleanup of Echo Lake Park invasives, to the City's $100,000 per year, no-bid contract with EarthCorps to do the same, appears to be overrun with grapevines, because the grapevine is the only way apparently to find the now missing article.

EarthCorps asked me to pull the article because they had not coordinated with ELNA about the details. It will be reposted later when everything is firmed up.
