Kirkland’s environmental stewards will participate in a planting event this fall at the Cross Kirkland Corridor’s intersection with Seventh Avenue. There, the City of Kirkland and King County are building a 720-square-foot rain garden that will help protect Lake Washington from pollutants carried into it by stormwater runoff. A $78,000 grant from King County is funding construction, which lasts from June to August.
Construction hours: 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Mon-Fri; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays
August 1 to August 21 (est.): Construction window for building the rain garden
October - November: Planting window for planting the rain garden
