Community Cares Day
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!
Community Cares Day
Sponsored by Carter Subaru
Wed, Feb 13, 2013 | 10 am - 2 pm | Golden Gardens Park, Seattle
You care about your community...and it shows! You recycle your paper products and compost as much of your food scraps as you can. You pick up litter when you see it and support your local food bank.
Or maybe you want to do all those things but don't...just yet.
Here's your chance to change that!
Community Cares Day is a great opportunity to get out into one of Seattle's most beloved parks and show it some love by pulling weeds and helping to plant trees with the Greenway Trust.
You will also have fun, meet some of your neighbors and enjoy the feeling of making a direct and immediate impact to the ecological health of one of your favorite urban natural spaces.
Register today and join others who believe that Community Cares!
In an exciting partnership with Carter Subaru, Seattle Parks and Recreation and Friends of Golden Gardens, volunteers will remove invasive Himalayan blackberry and English ivy, and plant native trees and shrubs in this shoreline park in Ballard on Community Cares Day: Wednesday, February 13th.
Recent Golden Garden Park projects have restored two wetlands, established a short loop trail, and restored the northern beach. However, there is a great deal more work needed in order to restore the environmental health of this park. Blackberries continue to encroach on the wetlands and English ivy has overtaken much of the upland forest in the park. Volunteers will be removing these weeds and helping to plant trees.
All Greenway restoration events are fun for the whole family. No experience is required. Registration required. Sign up today!
PROUD GREENWAY PARTNER AND SPONSOR:
Planting a Forest...One Test Drive at a Time
Since 2008, in partnership with the Mountains to Sound Greenway, Carter Subaru has planted over 60,000 native trees and shrubs in the Greenway as part of their On the Road to Carbon Neutral program.
Every time you test drive a Subaru at Carter Motors, they will plant one tree in your name in the Greenway. Buy a Subaru and they will plant three more during the Greenway's tree planting season.
