Restoration at Riverton
March 12 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Riverton Park is a beautiful community park with picnic tables, a playground, Gully Gardens P-Patch, and a walking loop with a natural border that offers something for everyone. The natural plant board of the park has largely established mature trees that support wildlife, reduce pollutants in the air, and help to bring shade on hot days. Unfortunately, these trees are in danger due to English ivy, which grows aggressively and chokes out native plants and trees. The good news is YOU ARE HERE to help; as a community, we can save these trees and install a healthy native forest; plus, it is a ton of fun!
All tools, materials, and training will be provided at the start of the work party.
Restrooms are onsite May-October. Otherwise, you may use the restroom at the Tukwila Community Center quick drive down the street
