Fall Planting at Twin Ponds Park

Monday, October 19, 2015

Trail of Cedars, the main trail in Twin Ponds Park.

Join the Stewards of Twin Ponds Park and the Parkwood Neighborhood Association for a fall planting work party on Saturday, October 24 from 9:30am to 11:30am. The party will meet on the Meridian entrance to the park, across the street from Evergreen School.

Do you know what a piggyback plant is? Or a devil's club? How tall is tall Oregon grape? The work party will be planting these native plants along with low Oregon grape, lots of sword ferns, oceanspray, nootka rose, red-flowering current, snowberry, gooseberry and rather fittingly considering the name of the park, twinberry as well.

The Stewards purchased the plants courtesy of City of Shoreline Environmental Mini Grant, along with hand tools. Diane Brewster, wetland scientist, will also participate to provide information on the plants and to describe the habitat of Twin Ponds Park.

The fall planting work party is a great way to learn about native plants and to help restoration efforts in the park. Bring gloves and a trowel, if you have one. For questions, call Yoshiko Saheki at 206-362-0149.
