North SeaTac Park is a 200+ urban oasis under the flight paths of SeaTac Airport. The trees here clean, quiet, and cool the air – true guardians of the community.
Community members have been transforming this area of the park near S. 128th Street since fall of 2020. A thick mat of ivy covering the ground and the trunks of Douglas Fir and Madrones – along with blackberry vines entangling the lower branches of trees – have been cleared in a large area – and native plants are beginning to regrow. We’ll focus on removing blackberry roots and vines in an area near newly-planted trees.
Hosted by the Green SeaTac Partnership, a collaborative effort between the City of SeaTac, King Conservation District, and other nonprofits, businesses, community groups, and volunteers.
