You’re invited! Community Tree Planting Work Party
Join SEA Airport and community members to get muddy as we plant native vegetation near Des Moines Creek on the morning of Saturday, Jan. 25. Participants will plant nearly 700 trees and shrubs at a site previously overtaken by invasive blackberry and ivy. The trees planted will increase native forest cover with a native shrub understory.
The planting event is part of the Port of Seattle’s airport land stewardship program and is an opportunity to engage with other community members invested in protecting and restoring urban forests.
When: Saturday, Jan. 25, 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Where: Park at the visitor lot for the SCORE Jail (20817 17th Ave S, Des Moines, WA 98198) and follow walking path indicated on map below to meeting point.
Supplies: The Port will provide snacks, gloves, and tools. Clothes and shoes appropriate for working outdoors in winter weather are recommended (waterproof boots, rain coat and pants, and warm layers). This event is family friendly and no experience is necessary.
