Mountains to Sound/Carter Subaru Partnership Helps Southwoods

Southwoods Park next to Shorecrest HS has been adopted by the Mountains to Sound and local dealership, Carter Subaru.

Southwoods Park was created in a grassroots effort by South Woods Preservation Group, when the City of Shoreline purchased the nearly 16 acre parcel in 2007. This was after a multi-year effort by the organization and the successful 2006 Shoreline Parks and Recreation Bond passage. The property had previously been owned jointly by Shoreline School District and Shoreline Water District.

Now Mountains to Sound Greenway organization has held two work parties to plant native conifers in the park. Mountains to Sound is hosting a number of work parties this winter all throughout its territory, which stretches across the Cascades and 1.5 million acres and 800,000 acres of public lands.

Mountains to Sound and is celebrating its 20th year and its mission is:
The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust leads and inspires action to conserve and enhance the landscape from Seattle across the Cascade Mountains to Central Washington, ensuring a long-term balance between people and nature.


Another goal of Mountains to Sound is to ask Congress to designate the "Greenway" as a National Heritage Area.

This past weekend, about 20 volunteers helped plant about 100 Western Red Cedar and Grand Fir trees. The trees and the program are supported in part by locally based Carter Subaru in its "carbon neutral project" campaign.

Carter Suburu has a dealership on Aurora Ave N and has contributed funds to support the planting of thousands of trees. The program offers automotive shoppers a way to help the environment.
