Native Plant Nursery Event at Lake Sammamish State Park

When
Saturday, November 13, 2021: 9-12pm
Event Type
Location
Greenway Nursery
Description

The Greenway Native Plant Nursery is home to nearly 30,000 native trees and shrubs. From the very start of their journey with the Greenway Trust, these trees are cared for by volunteers. At the nursery, volunteers pot these trees and shrubs, and after they have grown in our nursery for about two years, volunteers will plant these plants again, this time in their final homes in urban forests, parks, and open spaces throughout the Greenway landscape. 

This week, we are winterizing the nursery! Activities will include: moving and organizing potted plants, removing weeds from the nursery beds, and preparing nursery beds for future plants for planting projects in 2022. 

Remember to sign the e-waiver online before the event (link in agenda e-mail). Also, we are now offering Discover Pass vouchers for volunteers at all events in Lake Sammamish State Park — 24 hours in a year qualifies you for a free pass! Ask us at the event for more information. 

This is a fun event for everyone – no experience necessary!
