Commodore Park - Planting a Native Shoreline ...01/16/2017

This event was canceled


We will make a scarce bit of habitat - an un-armored (i.e., no sea wall) marine beach in Commodore Park on Salmon Bay, more friendly to birds and wildlife by planting native shrubs, replacing non-native blackberry which was removed by an EarthCorps crew. The beach already hosts diving ducks and mergansers, kingfishers, and a few great blue herons. We welcome everyone, Seniors, adults, unaccompanied youth 13 or more years of age, and children accompanied by an adult. We will validate work hours for people doing community service

Open to the public

All ages OK

17 out of 30 volunteers registered.

What to Bring

Dress for the weather. We will work, rain or shine. Bring water and a sandwich for lunch. We will provide tools, gloves, coffee, and light snacks.

Where to Meet

West end of Commodore Park parking lot which is at approximately 3350 West Commodore Way.

Where to Park

The parking lot at Commodore Park is free, but small, so please carp[ool if you can.
The best Bus service is the 44 bus, which connects with other bus lines in Ballard. Get off at 55th St (Market St.) and 30th Ave and walk south to and across the government Locks. Go west along the shoreline on the south side of Salmon bay until you come to the parking lot.
