Volunteers to restore stream habitat in Twin Ponds park - come help

Make me pretty again
Twin Ponds invasive overgrowth

Thornton Creek, in the southern end of Twin Ponds Park, will be the site of a volunteer work party on Saturday, July 22 from 10:00am to 1:00pm.

Stewards trained in environmental restoration by the Washington Native Plant Society are leading this event to recover valuable habitat along the creek.

This riparian and wetland area once sheltered spawning salmon and still hosts a few beautiful native shrubs beneath the mounds of invasive weeds. The restoration team expects that the area will again host more birds, frogs, small fish and mammals, flowering shrubs, willow trees and much more. 

Volunteers attending work parties will help clear the invasive weeds and plant beneficial native plants. Natural beauty and the life sustaining habitat will return in time, rewarding volunteer efforts and opening park visitors to a deeper understanding of nature.

If you wish to volunteer, please contact the stewards at this email address for further information about parking, what to bring and details of your work.

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