Save and Savor the Summer Tree Canopy in Kingsgate Park
Join the Green Kirkland Partnership and help volunteer to kick-off restoration at Kingsgate Park.
This park features beautiful rustic trails winding through a stand of mature conifer and deciduous trees and a wonderful tree canopy. Your help is needed to cut and pull invasive ivy from these majestic trees (year-round) and restore the depleted native understory by planting trees, shrubs and groundcovers (in fall).
No experience necessary and all tools provided!
This event will be led by Green Kirkland Staff.
