Join friends and neighbors to help restore native forest in Edmonds Pine Ridge Park on Saturday, October 29 from 10 a.m. to noon. Volunteers will plant 600 native trees and shrubs in the northeast corner of the park to improve habitat diversity and ensure the forest continues to thrive for generations to come. The event is free and no experience is necessary.
The event is organized by volunteers from the Edmonds Stewards program, who have worked in partnership with city staff to restore native habitat in the parks since 2015. Formerly known as Puget Sound Stewards, these volunteers have first joined together to restore the northern buffer zone of Edmonds Marsh, a long-term project largely completed. The Edmonds Stewards regularly hold working parties open to the public at Edmonds parks including Yost Park, Hutt Park and Pine Ridge Park.
Volunteers aged 13 and over are welcome and registration is required. Minors under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited so be sure to reserve your spot early.
Information about the Pine Ridge planting event, including work crew location and what to bring, can be found on the Sound Salmon Solutions events page at sonsalmonsolutions.org.
Upcoming events also include a free native plant giveaway on November 5, training for new stewards on November 12, and monthly working parties at other local parks. To learn more about additional park stewardship opportunities, visit the environmental stewardship pages on the City of Edmonds website or contact [email protected].
