A Gift of 'Grubbing'

This Saturday (March 2, 2013) we are pretty excited to clear and cut some large areas of blackberry canes in preparation for EarthCorps and student volunteers from Kennedy High School (Burien) to come back and remove the roots (Thank You EarthCorps!). But don't worry, if blackberries aren't your thing, we've got lots of ivy to pull and maybe even a few holly and laurel trees. Whether you're a fan of blackberries or not, here's an interesting link posted on KPLU's "I Wonder Why...?" series: Why did blackberry brambles become such a NW problem?

Saturday, March 2, 9am to noon
Meet at the kiosk in the NORTH parking lot (Fauntleroy Way SW and SW Rose St). If you miss us at 9am, check the kiosk map (in the North lot) to see where we are working. Rain and snow are not a problem, but we do cancel for high wind warnings.

What to Wear and bring: Dress in NW layers for warmth and dryness with sturdy shoes or boots. Long sleeves are recommended. Bring gloves and hand clippers if you have them, but we have extras. Bring a water bottle.
