There will be a “Work Party” (wait…isn’t that an oxymoron?) at Seahurst Park on Saturday, Oct. 23rd, from 10am – Noon, with the intention of cleaning up blackberries and ivy.

Volunteers are needed to help maintain an area at the north end of the park that was last cleaned in 2009 (by 200 goats and volunteers).

Please bring heavy gloves and a long-handled shovel; they’ll provide gloves and tools. Boots, blue jeans and a long sleeved shirt are recommended.

Here are the details:

WHAT: Seahurst Park Work Party.

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 23rd from 10am – Noon.

WHERE: Meet at the intersection of SW 130th and 16th Avenue SW (see map here).

INFO: From an email:

SEAHURST PARK:  Saturday, 10/23/09 10 am-12 pm
The group will be working up at the top area of the North Maintenance Road so we are asking people to gather at intersection of SW 130th and 16th Avenue SW – here is a Google link for directions: Google Map for Seahurst Park location.

We’re going to go back to an area we worked in early 2009. With the help of volunteers and about 200 goats we cleaned up an area at the north end of the Park, where the top of the maintenance road exits into Shorewood. Because we’ve been busy in other parts of the Park, the blackberries and some ivy have grown up in that area, so we need to go back and knock it down to allow the native plants to continue growing. If you can, bring heavy gloves and a long handled shovel, but we’ll have gloves and tools available. Boots, blue jeans and a long sleeved shirt are recommended.

Come on out if you can!

Thanks,
