Soos Creek Park Restoration Event
Saturday, January 25th – 10 AM – 2 PM
Meet at Gary Grant Park in Kent (on the north side of 208th street and just east of 132nd Street)
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 project’s purpose is to enhance an area around 2 ponds and adjacent to the creek. The area has been significantly infested for years with invasive non-native plants such as blackberries, scotch broom, and reed canary grass. We’ll be installing approximately 900 native upland plants in a section that has recently been cleared of blackberries.
In order to succeed, we’ll need a good turn-out of volunteers. So please save the date – January 25th 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. Questions: contact Mark Johnston. (SKCG)
