Volunteers needed to help restore White Center parks, including this Saturday


White-Center-Events-Flyer-2

Volunteers are needed to help restore four White Center parks over the next few months, including North Shorewood Park on this Saturday, June 4.

“I believe that a great way for community members to make a positive impact is to join together in service to improve the health and safety of their parks,” Volunteer Program Coordinator Lina Anne Rose (also a White Center resident) said. “Studies show many shared benefits to working towards healthy urban forests in our communities – from increased ecological value, animal habitat to positive public health impacts like lower asthma and obesity rates when there are trees or a healthy park nearby.”

Here are the upcoming events:

June 4, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.: North Shorewood Park (National Trails Day!)

June 11, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.: Thurnau Memorial Park

June 18, 12 p.m.-3:30 p.m.: White Center Heights Park (Seattle Works Day)

August 13, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.: North Shorewood Park

Interested community members should contact me by phone or email prior to the event so I can make sure that they have all the information they need for the project and that I have an accurate count of volunteers to plan for tools etc.
