An annual effort to help keep the St. Mark’s Greenbelt green will mark its 10th year this weekend and you’re invited to volunteer to be part of it.
Green Seattle Day 2015 will organizer volunteers at 14 locations in the city “for a fun morning of urban forest restoration.” As we found out when we first visited one of the restoration parties way back in 2009, it’s also a lot of work.
The St. Mark’s crew headed by longtime chief Robert Hayden already had 26 of its 30 volunteer slots filled as of Monday night but you can also register to help at any of the other Seattle parks and green spaces.
Calling all volunteers for a fun morning of urban forest restoration at Green Seattle Day at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 7. The 10th annual Green Seattle Day kicks off planting season with more than 10,000 plants ready for volunteers to put in the ground at 15 parks across Seattle. Green Seattle Day is a great opportunity to connect with nature and celebrate the dedication of thousands of volunteers working with Green Seattle Partnership throughout the year to restore over 2,500 acres of forested parkland.
