Soos Creek Park Restoration Event

Saturday, April 5th – 10 AM – 2 PM

Meet at the south parking lot at the intersection of 148th Avenue SE and 266th Street SE in Kent

South King County Group Sierra Club and Rainier Audubon Society, in coordination with King County Parks, will be hosting a habitat restoration event at Soos Creek Park. The area was previously infested with invasive non-native plants such as blackberries, scotch broom, holly, English laurel, ivy, and reed canary grass. Over the last several years we’ve cleared all that and replanted with native species. The task of this event will be to remove newly rebounding populations of invasives and clear around our native plantings to assure the site continues to recover.

 

In order to succeed, we’ll need a good turn-out of volunteers. So please save the date – April 5th for Soos Creek Park. You’ll need to sign a couple of liability release forms when you arrive. Tools, drinks, and snacks will be provided, but please bring your own work gloves (we’ll have some on hand if you don’t have them) and dress for the work and weather as this is a rain-or-shine event. For more information, please contact Mark Johnston. (SKCG)
