Saturday work party, March 1

Hey Friends of Lincoln Park, are you ready to pull some holly? We've got lots of small ones in the area we're now moving into. A chance to try the new weed wrench. Of course, there's lots of ivy for the meticulous workers. And then there is the beauty of the forest in the spring! I saw a salmon berry blossom the other day, Indian plums are open and the red flowering current is budding. And have you heard the ravens? They are back again this year! Keeps the crows busy.
  • Saturday, March 1 from 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

Sunday Work Party, Feb 16

Along the beach at Lincoln Park, 2-9-14
Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park. Did you get out in the park in the snow on Sunday? It was beautiful! New way of seeing the park. But it should be gone by next Sunday when we have our maintenance work party. And I bet the Indian plum will finally have actual blossoms. 
  • Sunday, Feb 16, 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 solid shoes or boots (we might be in a wet area again)

Check out our blog for information on Park Department activities looking at the feasibility of increasing bicycle usage in parks. There is a feasibility study planned for Cheasty Greenspace.  The proposal can be found here, along with the Parks Department ruling to recommend it.

Join us for a good winter workout and good karma! Sharon
