Craig Thompson sent this note to the BAN list. Potential volunteers take note:
This Saturday, August 13, a group of us whoâ€™ve worked to create a positive place around the orchard at Dr. Jose Rizal Park are going to have a work party, nothing too big, just some trail cleanup down to the orchard so this September, groups from Fred Hutchinson and Seattle Pacific University can access the site safely and effectively.
All tools will be provided, and weâ€™re going to meet up 10 AM and go to 1 PM. Weâ€™ll cut back and haul up to the top a bit of brush â€“ some of which is already down. It may be sunny, but long sleeves, long pants, and good shoes are what youâ€™ll need to wear.
The Rizal Park orchard project was recently mentioned in a post in the Ear to the Ground blog from the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.
Dr. Jose Rizal Park is located at 1008 12th Avenue South.
