Work party Saturday to spruce up Maple School Natural Area

Environmental Outreach and Stewardship (EOS) Alliance members and other volunteers will be working together at a community work party at the Maple School Natural Area this Saturday, June 19, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

According to the EOS website, the “plan of action will be mulching around native plants that were planted this past winter and doing some quality control by removing invasive plants such as English Ivy and Himalayan Blackberry. EOS Alliance team members will also be offering information on the natural history of the area and about habitat restoration efforts in Seattle. Gloves, tools and refreshments will be provided. Just bring yourselves and a reusable cup for refreshments, and get ready to get in touch with nature!”

To join the work party on Saturday morning, meet at 20th Avenue South and South Lucile Street, at the top of the stairs, at 10:00 am. Please RSVP to Ben Kantner at Don’t forget to dress for the weather and for nature, and bring a reusable cup for refreshments.
