Lincoln Park Sat, 11-2

Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park! We're moving into the cold, rainy season, and it gets harder to go outside.  That is, unless you've got a really good reason to get out. The wet season is the best season for invasive plant removal in Lincoln. The soil is soft, the birds are no longer nesting and it's surprisingly cozy in the woods. Join us! 
  •    Saturday, Nov 2, 9am to noon
  • Meet at the kiosk in the north parking lot (Fauntleroy Way SW & SW Rose St)
  • Dress in NW layers to stay warm and dry, with sturdy shoes or boots

Check the weather forecast, rain is no problem, but we do cancel if there are high wind warnings. We promise you a good workout (and an opportunity to do good for your planet). Sharon

Sunday work party, Oct 20

Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park! The forecasts suggest a beautiful weekend to hang out in the woods and do some good work. We've got a work party coming up to do maintenance in areas we've previously put into restoration--important, satisfying work. We might even plant a few things, now that the rain has started. Join us!
  • Sunday, Oct 20th, 9am to noon
  • Meet at the kiosk in the north parking lot (Fauntleroy Way SW & SW Rose St)
  • Dress in NW layers to stay warm and dry. Sturdy shoes or boots suggested.
