Sunday work party, August 17

(Updated 8-17, with pics, scroll down)

Warm (maybe 92 degrees!) greetings Friends of Lincoln Park! We've got a work party coming up. On a hot day, the forest is one of the coolest places you can be! As an added inducement, a FLiP member, Bruce of Harry's Chicken Joint will be treating volunteers to his wonderful smoked, skillet fried chicken! Can't pass that up! 
  • Sunday, Aug 17th 9am to noon
  • Meet at the north parking lot kiosk (Fauntleroy Way SW & SW Rose St)
  • For your protection, long sleeves and pants suggested w sturdy shoes or boots

I wanted to share some resources with you from SeattleNature Alliance, a group of our neighbors formed to advocate for Seattle parks after the zip line affair.

1) A PAT (Project Advisory Team) is being formed because of the controversy surrounding the mountain bike park proposal for Cheasty Greenspace: http://parkways.seattle.gov/2014/08/07/parks-to-form-project-advisory-team-for-cheasty-pilot-bikepedestrian-trail-2/#sthash.JWGelm58.dpbs


3) Thoughtful essay from SNA on passive use of natural areas http://seattlenaturealliance.org/2014/08/08/passive-use-a-thin-green-line/
Work break, 8-17
Back to work! 8-17
