Union Bay Boglands #1 - Environmental Restoration at Yesler ...07/10/2016
Yesler Swamp is one of the last true remaining swamps in the Seattle area. It is an oasis in the midst of the bustling University District. Come slay invasive species, meet other awesome folks, and explore the new boardwalk!
We will begin the work day with an exhilarating swamp tour and walk along the newly constructed cedar boardwalk—you may see beavers, owls, eagles, and of course many different varieties of plants.
Please come for any amount of time that works with your schedule—every bit helps!

What to Bring
Please bring sturdy shoes and clothes that can get dirty/muddy (always prepare for rain), in addition to a water bottle and a snack. Dressing in layers is strongly recommended. Tools and gloves are provided, but please feel free to bring your own favorite tool if you have one (or many)! No experience is required to participate, and volunteers will be educated on how to safely use all tools. Bringing water is essential to avoid dehydration. Access to water fountains and restrooms is dependent on the Center for Urban Horticulture buildings being open, and they are often closed on weekends.
Where to Meet
Volunteers should meet me (Carolyn Foster) at the Yesler Swamp trail sign at the eastern Center for Urban Horticulture parking lot (3501 NE 41st Street) at 11:00 am for an exciting swamp tour before we begin working. Yesler Swamp is the red X on the attached map.
If arriving later than 11:00 am, walk down the boardwalk until you find us.
If you arrive at the Center for Urban Horticulture and are confused, please don't hesitate to give me a call at 360-773-5228.
