Forty-four hazardous trees were removed last fall from the Burke-Gilman Trail in Lake Forest Park.
While we were sad to see them go, we now have the opportunity to start anew by planting trees in their place.
Come join the Lake Forest Park Tree Board and City Arborist Mike Woodbury at an all-volunteer planting event on Saturday, February 6, 2016. Learn about tree planting and care while doing your part to enhance our urban forest. These volunteer hours can count toward Shoreline School District volunteer requirements.
Tools will be provided by the City of Lake Forest Park, but please bring your own gloves and extra shovels if you have them. The event is rain-or-shine, so dress appropriately.
Meet in front of Lake Forest Park City Hall, 17425 Ballinger Way NE, between 9:45 and 10:00am. If you arrive after 10:00am, you can meet on the Burke-Gilman Trail roughly across from Starbucks.
To participate, click on “Volunteer Services Form,”, and email your completed form to Planning Technician Jake Tracy.
All are welcome!
