Grace Cole Nature Park
Saturday, October 20, 2018, 9am to Noon

Some of our most stalwart volunteers have hauled chips and spread them on steepest portions of the trail, but we still have a diminishing pile to spread onto portions of the forest floor to improve the soil and to discourage the weeds as best we can.

There still remain Ivy, Blackberries and Laurel to keep us occupied. I can also bring a few sword fern and cedars for which we can find spots. Autumn rains will assure they'll have moisture for a good start.

We encourage participation by young people who wish to fulfill Community Service obligations, or just wish to help improve the forest. We have consent forms for parents or guardians to sign. Younger children are welcome, too, if accompanied by an adult.

Please dress for the weather. Bring your favorite tools if you like. We will also have some tools on hand. Most often needed are pruning shears, loppers and shovels (for digging out roots).

Some refreshments will be available, and we'll have sandwiches at noon.

Grace Cole Nature Park is accessed by heading south on 28th Ave NE from NE 178th St in Lake Forest Park, for about 1/2 mile.

The park is well marked on your right, just before the road takes a big turn up the hill to the left.

Questions? Call Mamie 206-364-4410.
