Join the Green Kirkland Partnership and EarthCorps to help with the restoration of Kingsgate Park. This park features beautiful rustic trails winding through a stand of mature conifer and deciduous trees and a beautiful tree canopy. Your help is needed to cut and pull invasive ivy from these majestic trees and restore the depleted native understory by planting trees, shrubs, and groundcovers.
Join your neighbors, make new friends, and heal landscape. Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to join us! No experience necessary and all tools are provided!
This event will be led by our partners at EarthCorps.
