Green Seattle Day is a meaningful way to connect with nature and create a healthy and vibrant community by planting native trees and shrubs in a park near you. The event takes place in 17 parks city-wide.
Join EarthCorps and the Green Seattle Partnership as we celebrate Seattle’s forests by restoring this amazing park. Today we will be performing maintenance on past restoration sites and removing invasive plant species such as English ivy & Himalayan blackberry. We may also be planting native trees & shrubs today! A park with a view, Golden Gardens sits on the shore of Shilshole Bay and over looks the Olympic Mountains. Who would think that such a tranquil scene would be the sight of a struggle of epic proportions? Within the forests of Golden Gardens, the invasive plant English ivy is crowding out native trees and shrubs and making the survival of native seedlings extremely difficult.
