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


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.
