Ballinger Open Space Summer Maintenance
Urban carbon sequestration is happening as we speak at Ballinger Open Space in the City of Shoreline. With help from our partners, including a local non-profit called City Forest Credits, trees have been and will continue to be planted at Ballinger Open Space as part of a carbon sequestration pilot project, funded in part by Bank of America. This project highlights the importance of trees in our urban spaces to improve both environmental and human health, and thinks creatively on how to create and maintain successful projects. Check out more information, here.
Volunteers are welcomed to come out and be a part of this exciting project in Shoreline, care for the native trees that have already been planted, and help remove invasive species to open up more space to plant additional trees this fall. No experience necessary – all training provided.
For safety, volunteers are required to wear:
- Long pants made of sturdy material
- Sturdy, close-toed shoes
- Gloves (provided)
In addition, we recommend that participants bring:
- Warm layers, especially during the fall, winter, and spring
- Rain gear
- Big sack lunch
- Long sleeved shirt
- At least one full water bottle
- Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc…
