Saturday work party 12/3/16

Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park, hope you all had a satisfying Thanksgiving. And now it's time for a good workout! Did you know that a 3 hour work party can burn up to 1000 calories? Here's your chance
  • Sat Dec 3, 9am to noon
  • Meet by the north parking lot kiosk (Fauntleroy Way SW & SW Rose St)
  • There's a chance of rain, so bring your gear. Rain pants are great. 
And if you want even more exercise, join us on Wed and Friday mornings this next week (11/30 & 12/2). We have 25 4th graders from Gatewood Elementary working each morning from about 9:30 to noon. We'll be working on a tree island south of the Jobox, across from the brick building with bathrooms. Should be fun, and we can always use more experienced hands to help the kids. Sharon

If you're wondering about the plastic pots laying around near the North Parking Lot, here's the answer. They are marking the locations of over 75 native plants waiting for mulch. That mulch will ring the plants and provide an environment critical for their early survival.
These plants were part of the 350 natives planted on November 5. We're hoping for a mulch delivery soon! Then we'll put away the pots!

Sunday work party 11/20/16

Greetings Friends of Lincoln Park. We have a work party coming up. It's a chance to get a good work out before launching into Thanksgiving!
  • Sunday, Nov 20th 9am to noon
  • Meet near north parking lot kiosk (Fauntleroy Way SW and SW Rose St)
  • The forecast is rain, so be prepared. Rain pants are great, if you have them.
On Saturday the 5th, in the pouring rain, 6 of us put in about 200 plants, we're heros! This last week another hero volunteer, Colin, put in about 150 more, way to go! 

Next Sunday, we'll be finishing up putting mulch around plants and maybe also doing some invasive removal. Sharon
