The 10th annual Green Seattle Day begins at 9 a.m. Saturday at 15 parks around the city, including Woodland Park, where volunteers will help restore parkland and put plants in the ground.
Volunteers will be at six restoration projects in Southeast Seattle (Genesee Park, Cheasty Greenspace Mt. View, Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetland, Maple Wood Playfield, East Duwamish Greensbelt and Seward Park), and the Burke-Gilman Trail, Discovery Park, Jackson Park, Leschi Park, Lincoln Park, Peppi’s Woods, St. Mark’s Greenbelt, West Duwamish Greenbelt and Woodland Park
All are welcome and no experience is necessary. Tools will be provided as well as instruction on how to plant trees properly to ensure a long and healthy life—an excellent learning experience for kids and aspiring gardeners alike. Advanced registration is required at www.greenseattle.org
