Kingfisher Natural Area on TC - Celebrate The Earth at ...04/12/2014
Looking for a way to honor Mother Nature and celebrate Earth Month 2014? Consider joining GSP Forest Stewards at the Shadow Ledge Wetland to make sure native trees and shrubs around the wetland survive and thrive. Invasive removal and mulching activities are planned. Getting into the site is a steep climb downhill, but once into the wetland basin, the work area is flat and drier than you would think. Some weeding is needed in the wetter areas also. Native wildflowers should be in bloom as a viewing bonus for working here. Brief history of the site, weeding techniques, and tool demonstration included.
Open to the public
2 out of 10 volunteers registered.
What to Bring
Tools, buckets, and supplies provided. Wear appropriate work clothes for the weather and bring your own gloves. Boots recommended if you plan to work in the wetter areas of the wetland habitat. Light refreshments provided. If you bring your own tools, please make sure you mark them with your name.

Head east on Northgate Way to 15th Ave NE. Turn right and head south on 15th Ave NE until you get to NE 103rd Street.
