Volunteers are needed for a Forest Rescue in North SeaTac Park, from 3 – 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2023.

Help transform a forest!

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.

Volunteers will be working in a corner of the park, under towering poplars and Douglas Fir, that was almost completely overrun with ivy that carpeted the ground and climbed the tree trunks.

Now this area is mostly cleared of weeds and, during the last two annual Green SeaTac Days, volunteers planted cedars, firs, and pine trees, snowberries, fringe cup, salal, flowering currant, and more.

Continuing help is needed to protect these new plantings so that they can thrive and keep the weeds at bay and our park beautiful.

At this event, we’ll do a site tour to see how the new plantings are doing, remove re-emerging weeds, and continue to expand the cleared area to provide even more of a buffer for the new plantings – and space for new ones.
