Plant Native Trees at Tanner Landing Natural Area
Join us and King County Parks and Recreation at Tanner Landing Park this March! Volunteers will have an opportunity to participate in the first part of a habitat restoration citizen science project at the park. The project will be testing different fertilization methods, to help answer the questions related to increasing native plant survival at this park.
The park is located along the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River. This park is often referred to as the gateway to the Middle Fork Valley, and the recreation offerings and spectacular views found there reinforce that name. There is easy river access for kayaks and rafts as well as a picnic area and fields for passive recreation. A trail along river offers visitors opportunities for viewing wildlife that frequents the area. Over the past decade, Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust has been working with King County to restore this important riparian area by removing invasive species and planting native trees and shrubs in their place.
This March, volunteers will continue to help these restoration efforts, incorporating specific restoration plots to test different restoration practices and their outcomes in the compact soil at the site.
No experience necessary, all training provided. Thank you for volunteering!
