Success Story in the Fight Against Invasive Plants at Mount Baker Park! June 28, 2011

Filed under: Hot Projects,Volunteer — seattleworks @ 5:29 pm

A team of 13 Seattle Works volunteers spent their Saturday helping out at Mt Baker Park. The goal was to remove some invasive plants, such as English ivy and Himalayan blackberry, as well as carrying out other nature-related tasks. We just received word from Del Davis, via email, that the volunteers did an excellent job and carried out the work in a quick time:

“On behalf of the Mt Baker community and all those that enjoy Mt Baker park, many thanks to you and your Seattle Works team for a job well done. Your team’s hard work enabled us to remove a “ton” of invasive plants, to lay coffee sacks over approximately 1600 sq ft of previously planted area and to spread 25 cubic yards of mulch; a total work product that would have normally taken more time to accomplish. Thanks again to you and the team.”

Thank you to Michael Beenen who was the co-ordinator for this project, and thanks to Mt. Baker park for having us! It’s important to help maintain the green spaces in our city and provide a safe and fun environment for visitors; Seattle Works was happy to help! And of course, a huge thanks to the team!
