North Beach Park Work Party, Aug 27th, 2011

Join neighbors and friends the 4th Saturday of every month as we remove invasive plants from the North Beach Park and Nature Area, at 24th Ave. NW and NW 90th St. We meet at 9 am at the entrance to the park; the next work party is August 27th. Bring water, sturdy shoes, and clothes you’re willing to get dirty. We’ll provide gloves and tools.

North Beach Park is a small ravine park kitty corner from North Beach Elementary. Although there is a serious problem with invasives, the canopy and understory still have a diversity of native species, from Western Red Cedar and Big Leaf Maple down to Pacific Waterleaf. The park is also home to mountain beavers and numerous birds. Removing invasive plants increases the beauty and improves habitat and health of the park.
