Work Hard for our Hard Working Forest!

Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park! Spring continues to creep up on our hard working forest. One of the things we love in the NW is the way spring starts in January. But why call our forest "hard working"? Check out the report in the resources section of our Blog (Seattle Forest Ecosystem Values Report). The trees of Seattle (including our 80 acres of forest) remove 725 metric tons of pollutants from the air and sequester 141,000 tons of carbon every year. Not just a beautiful forest!  And our work, maintaining that forest, contributes to those ecosystem services. Way to go!!

AND we've got a work party coming up: 
          Sunday, February 17th from 9am to noon
          Meet at the kiosk in the north parking lot (Fauntleroy Way SW and SW Rose St)
          Dress in NW layers to stay warm and dry, with sturdy shoes or boots.
Rain or snow are not a problem, but we do cancel for high wind warnings. If you miss us at 9am, call Lisa at 248 506 7155 or check the map in the kiosk to see where we are working


  1. I cannot make it this Sunday but will be helping out when I can. Could you post a map of the current work area?

  2. Hi James. My apologies for not responding sooner. I will talk with Sharon Baker and see if I can get a map together and post for you and others who are interested (good idea). Thanks!
