Work party in Twin Ponds Park Saturday

The holly and the ivy are good to sing about
but not so good in area parks
Twin Ponds work party, Saturday, January 27, 2018, 10am

Experience the restorative powers of the outdoor, natural environment while enjoying shared community effort as we restore our woodland and creek side wildlife habitat in Twin Ponds Park next Saturday.

Join one of six teams trying to beautify Shoreline's Parks as we clear invasive weeds that destroy our native plants, preventing them from supporting the living creatures who depend on them.

In the picture you can see both English Holly and English Ivy that may have escaped from someone's yard. They outcompete the native plants.

The southern end of Twin Ponds Park is the place next Saturday, January 27 from from 10:00am to 1:00pm, rain or shine. Stewards trained in environmental restoration by the Washington Native Plant Society lead efforts to recover valuable habitat along Thornton creek. We will be right at the creek's edge this week where the soil is very soggy.

Bring waterproof footwear, rain gear, and warm layers. Gloves, tools, snack bars and water will be provided. Park near 149th Street and First Ave. near the southern end of the park across from Aegis Assisted Living. The parking lot adjacent to where we are working may be full. (Avoid the lot at 155th St.) Contact us at twinpondssouthhabitat@gmail.com to let us know you are coming or for questions you may have.

This project is sponsored by the Shoreline Department of Parks and Recreation, King Conservation District and the Washington Native Plant Society.
