Work Party Cancelled - Jan 18

Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park, we need to CANCEL THE WORK PARTY, scheduled for 9am to noon on Sunday, 1-18-15 (tomorrow). NOAA has issued a wind advisory for winds 25-35 mph with gusts up to 50 mph and it's not really safe to be in the woods with that much wind. Our next work party is scheduled for Saturday, Feb 7th. See you then. Sharon

Sunday work party, Jan. 18, 2015

Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park. What fabulous work we've been doing! I just learned that out of 68 active green space restoration areas in Seattle, in 2014 we were #7 in terms of number of volunteers who signed in for work parties (670) and number of volunteer hours (2068 hours). We are truly making a difference, this is a major effort for the health of our city and our citizens. It all adds up! And here's your next opportunity to contribute to the effort.

  • Sunday, Jan 18, 9am to noon
  • Meet near the north parking lot kiosk (Fauntleroy Way SW and SW Rose St)
  • Dress in NW layers to stay warm and dry with sturdy shoes or boots
We will be doing maintenance, going back to areas previously placed in restoration to remove recent and missed invasive plants. We don't want to lose ground! Sharon
