Heron Habitat Helpers

Help restore and maintain habitat for the largest Great Blue Heron heronry in Seattle.  While weeding, mulching and perhaps, planting, you might catch sight of a heron or two, learn more about native plants, and see other creatures in the Kiwanis Natural Wildlife Ravine (see http://heronhelpers.org/AboutHHH.html).

This is a great way to earn volunteer hours and contribute to your community.

Lincoln Park

We need volunteers to help us remove blackberry, ivy, clematis and other invasives, and plant natives in 80 acres of beautiful mature woods in Lincoln Park in West Seattle. We also need help maintaining areas that have already been cleared and planted. This is an ongoing project. Interested volunteers are welcome to take part in planning the work, selecting plants, or taking on a particular project. Lincoln Park has some of the highest level of native plant diversity in the City. It is a real gem with extensive woods and beach, along with ball fields and children's playgrounds.

Bring: Dress in layers with sturdy shoes/boots and good protection from blackberries. Bring gloves and your favorite tools (hand clippers are the major tool). We'll have mini-tillers, extra clippers and weed wrenches.
