Join your friends and neighbors for a few hours to help improve your local park and enhance fish and wildlife habitat, with the next opportunity on Saturday, March 3.

Why Walker Preserve?
Walker Preserve is a community treasure that needs your help. Help remove English Ivy – an invasive species – and restore native trees & shrubs. If left unchecked, English Ivy can:

  • Outcompete native trees and shrubs;
  • Reduce plant diversity and attract pests; and
  • Destroy the vibrant urban forest along Walker Creek

2018 Dates:

WHEN: Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. – Noon:

  • March 3
  • April 28
  • June 16
  • September 22
  • November 17

No experience required.

All ages are welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult.

WHERE: Walker Preserve Park, SW. 168th St. and 2nd Ave. SW. in Normandy Park, up the road from Normandy Park City Hall. Parking options include:

  • Three spaces in the small lot at SW 171st St. and Second Ave. S.W.
  • On the street along SW. 168th St.

Plan ahead – this park does not have a restroom.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Filled water bottle
