Forest Restoration Work Party at Westcrest Park!

October 30, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Event Description

Calling all eco-volunteers of the greater Seattle area! Dirt Corps leads volunteer parties at Westcrest every month. We are working on the parcel of land next to 8th Ave, and it is overgrown with Himalayan blackberries! We are looking for volunteers to help us battle back the blackberries and gradually transform Westcrest Park into an even greater public space for everyone to enjoy.

Dirtcorps crew members will provide volunteers with weed identification training, so no previous experience is required! Combine knowledge with action as we work to clear this beautiful space of the harmful species that overtake the area. We hope to see you there!!!

Acompaña a DIRT Corps a revitalizar el Parque Westcrest. Estamos trabajando en la tierra de la parcela de la 8a avenida del Parque Westcrest en donde la zarzamora está demasiado crecida! Está en nuestras manos como DIRT Corps y en la de los voluntarios el mantener el control del crecimiento de la zarzamora en este espacio!

El inicio de este evento voluntario incluirá una breve introducción de plantas invasoras. Combina el conocimiento con la acción mientras trabajamos para limpiar este hermoso espacio de las plantas invasoras que lo dañan y lo van desplazando de él.

Trabajemos juntos para transformar y mantener gradualmente el Parque Westcrest y hacer de él un espacio agradable al público para que todos puedan disfrutarlo. Déjanos saber si tienes alguna pregunta, esperamos verte ahí!
