Park Steward Moving On


Sad news to report to the Friends of Lincoln Park today: Park co-steward Lisa McGinty and her family are moving to Michigan at the end of June. The success of this group is due in large part to the work of its two wonderful park stewards. Here they are together, not in their park grubbies:
Sharon Baker (L) and Lisa McGinty
Thanks for everything you did for Lincoln Park, Lisa! Best wishes to you and your family on your new adventures, and stay in touch!

Working Together

Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park, the nipplewort and stinky bob are going wild in Lincoln! Let's pull as much as possible before it goes to seed. To that end, we've got a work party coming up:

What: Forest Restoration and Maintenance with Friends of Lincoln Park.  It's Lisa's last work party before she and Paul and Fin move east. Would love to see any/all who can make it! 

When: Sunday, June 16th from 9am to noon

Where: 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. 

What to Wear and bring: Even if it's warm, it's a good idea to wear long pants and long sleeves (stickers). Bring gloves and hand clippers if you have them, but we have extras. Bring a water bottle. Please call if you have any questions.Sharon Baker 206 464 1068  or Lisa McGinty 248 506 7155.

Hope to see you
