Winter Organizing – Native Plant Nursery Edition
The Greenway Native Plant Nursery is home to nearly 16,000 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.
Our first event of 2019 will really set us up for a successful year! To make room for 13,000 new trees and shrubs this year, we are looking for help to prepare and organize our nursery in Lake Sammamish State Park. This is a fun event for everyone, and we are looking forward to organizing with you!
For safety, volunteers are required to wear:
- Long pants
- Sturdy, close-toed shoes
- Gloves (provided)
In addition, we recommend that participants bring:
- Warm layers
- Rain gear
- Big sack lunch
- At least one full water bottle
- Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc.
