There will be an open house for the Cheasty Greenspace tonight (Tuesday, June 3), at the Beacon Hill library from 6:10 to 6:50. There will be photographs of the Cheasty forest featuring native plant and tree species, birds, maps from the Seattle Parks Department “Cheasty Greenspace Vegetation Management Plan,” information on Cheasty wildlife and history, and lively discussion about the future of South Seattle’s own Cheasty Greenspace Forest. Mark Mead from the Seattle Parks Department will be on hand to give an update and answer questions during the regular North Beacon Hill Council meeting starting at 7 p.m.
Also on display will be images of the skateable sculpture by artist C.J Rench that will be installed at the north end of Jefferson Park later this month. More info on the project can be found on the project page at the DPR website.
