Helpin' Out Salmon and Orcas in Bothell's Urban Forest

Join us to clip back, dig out and haul away the invasive species - all to make room for more native plantings! Snacks and refreshments are provided! Volunteer work parties provide great networking opportunities, an introduction to restoration ecology, and a fun way to spend time in the great outdoors! If you're a first time FNCF volunteer, please complete and bring this form! Support for this volunteer event is provided by the Puget Sound Stewardship and Mitigation Fund, a grantmaking fund created by the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance and administered by the Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment. Volunteer tasks could include invasive species removal, spreading mulch, planting native species.
