Volunteers remove invasives at South Woods
By Kelly O'Callahan, Volunteer Specialist, EarthCorps

A group of Shoreline community volunteers joined together this Saturday, May 21, 2011 at South Woods Park to take part in an awesome environmental restoration effort. 

Eighteen volunteers joined forces with EarthCorps and the City of Shoreline to remove invasive plant species from 4000 square feet of the park. 

English Ivy and English Holly were the main targets for the day, but some Herb Robert and Laurel were also removed. Not only were the volunteers productive, but everyone learned something new about Pacific Northwest native plants.

EarthCorps strives to build global community through local environmental service. Volunteer with EarthCorps and REI at Hamlin Park on June 4th to celebrate National Trails Day. Sign up online.
