Jackson Park Trail Work Party
Aug 19 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Activities

This lovely trail around Jackson Park crosses Thornton Creek and passes through a variety of landscapes crowded with invasive ivy, blackberry, laurel, and holly. Starting with a beautiful stretch of healthy woodland, we’re planning to rescue ivy choked trees, pull out blackberries and ivy, replant and mulch to store native vegetation, and keep this popular trail clear of hazards like brambles, branches, and leaves.

Open to the public

All ages OK

6 out of 15 volunteers registered.

What to Bring

Bring stout gloves and your favorite hand tools (we have a job box with some tools)

Where to Meet

We’ll meet at the Seattle Parks rainbow sign for Jackson Park Trail. It’s located next to the entrance to the Golf Course, at NE 135th and 11th NE. (This is the golf course north of northgate, east of I-5, that extends from NE 135th to NE 145th St).

Where to Park

Parking is available next to the rainbow sign. For bus riders, walk west on NE 135th from 15th NE, where buses 347, 348, and 73 are reasonably frequent, or take the 41 and walk north on 10th NE at NE 125th.

Twin Ponds Work Party
Aug 26 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Thornton Creek flows through Twin Ponds Park in the City of Shoreline. In 2017, the Washington Native Plant Society, as part of its Master Native Plant Stewardship Program, selected the area surrounding the southernmost portion of the creek in Twin Ponds Park as a targeted restoration area. Currently, Himalayan blackberry, ivy, holly and other invasive plants dominate the landscape. The overarching plan is to replace them with a variety of native plants.

 

What to Bring

Heavy gloves, long sleeved shirt, and hat; sunscreen. Tools will be provided but feel free to bring your own.

Where to Meet

South parking lot of Twin Ponds Park, 15401 First Avenue NE, Shoreline, WA 98133. The south parking lot is across the street from Aegis Assisted Living.

Where to Park

If the south parking lot is full, the north parking lot is located on the corner of 1st Avenue NE and NE 155th Street. There is also street parking along the soccer field between the two parking lots.
