Most Shoreline residents drive by Ronald Bog and enjoy a glimpse of the still water. Thanks to the efforts of local volunteers, those views are getting bigger and better.

Led by Shoreline resident and native plant steward Dick Decker of Meridian Park Neighborhood Association, local volunteers have put in hundreds of hours removing blackberries and other invasive species from Ronald Bog Park. 

The volunteers are planting native species and the result is restoration of habitat and great views of waterfowl, turtles, and other wildlife at the bog. On October 23, local Shorecrest High School students joined the work party. You can help continue those efforts.

There will be additional opportunities to volunteer at Ronald Bog on Saturday, November 6 and Saturday, November 20 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. 

This event will be co-sponsored by the City of Shoreline and the Meridian Park Neighborhood Association and will continue the restoration work from the earlier work parties. Ronald Bog Park is located at 2301 N 175th in Shoreline, 98133 at the intersection of Meridian and N 175.

For more information about either work party, contact Nora Smith at 206-801-2253. All minors must have a signed waiver form, available electronically by email.
