Next event:

Soos Creek Park Restoration Event, Saturday, October 11th, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Meet at Gary Grant Park in Kent (on the north side of 208th street and just east of 132nd Street)

On October 11th (10:00 AM – 2:00 PM), Sierra Club South King County Group and Rainier Audubon Society, in coordination with King County Parks, will be hosting a large habitat restoration event at Soos Creek Park. To reach the work site, just walk a few hundred yards on the trail south of the 208th Street parking lot.

The area we’ll be working was previously infested with invasive non-native plants such as blackberries and scotch broom. Over the last several years we’ve cleared all that and replanted with native species. The focus of this event will be to install and mulch additional native plants in the area and do some basic weeding around our previous plantings.

In order to succeed, we’ll need a very good turn-out of volunteers. So please save the date – October 11th 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.
