Volunteers at Ballinger Open Space
Saturday, June 22 - 9am to 1pm Greenway Event at Ballinger Open Space

Urban carbon sequestration is happening as we speak at Ballinger Open Space in the City of Shoreline. 

With help from our partners, including a local non-profit called City Forest Credits, trees have been and will continue to be planted at Ballinger Open Space as part of a carbon sequestration pilot project, funded in part by Bank of America.

This project highlights the importance of trees in our urban spaces to improve both environmental and human health, and thinks creatively on how to create and maintain successful projects. Check out more information, here.

Volunteers are welcomed to come out and be a part of this exciting project in Shoreline, care for the native trees that have already been planted, and help remove invasive species to open up more space to plant additional trees this fall.

No experience necessary – all training provided. Any participant under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

What to Bring

For safety, volunteers are required to wear:
  • Long pants made of sturdy material
  • Sturdy, close-toed shoes
  • Gloves (provided)
In addition, we recommend that participants bring:
  • Warm layers, especially during the fall, winter, and spring
  • Rain gear
  • Big sack lunch
  • Long sleeved shirt
  • At least one full water bottle
  • Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc…
Parking for this event will be at the Cascade K-8 Community School, located at the old Aldercrest elementary school. Look for Greenway event leaders and signs to walk you to your volunteer site (about 1000 feet from the parking area).
