City of Shoreline - Park Restoration
We invite you and your community to join the City of Shoreline’s Master Stewards − trained by the Washington Native Plant Society − to perform environmental restoration in Shoreline’s forested parks!
No experience necessary - just bring your enthusiasm and determination for community-engaged restoration at any of the parks listed below. We welcome individuals, families, and groups who would like to do good to weed out invasive species and install native plants – rain or shine! Let us hear from you - we have three different projects to choose from:
Twin Ponds (South End): 2nd Saturdays 10am to 1pm 7/13 and 8/10 - contact RestoreTwinPondsSouth@outlook.com
Brugger's Bog: 2nd Sundays 9am to 1pm 7/14 and 8/11 - contact BruggersBogStewards@gmail.com
Hamlin Park: 3rd Saturdays No July or August work parties, be back in September! Hamlin.Restoration@gmail.com
Twin Ponds (North End): 2nd Saturdays 10am to 12pm 7/13 and 8/10 contact NorthTwinPondsRestoration@gmail.com
We will provide gloves, tools, and water. Please bring a water bottle (for refills), lunch, layers for the weather, and tough shoes and clothes that can get muddy.
We aim to engage Shoreline residents, community groups, and others in recognizing the vital advantages our urban forests contribute to Shoreline’s environmental, social, and economic well-being. Urban forests provide many benefits including, but not limited to:
- Enhanced human wellness
- Improved air quality and mitigated wind effects
- Reduction in stormwater runoff and erosion, which ameliorates flooding issues
- Increased shade and cooling for fish-bearing streams, such as Thornton Creek
- Enhancement of wildlife habitat
- Increase in property values
We look forward to restoring with you!
