We’re digging up native plants and need your help!
Join other volunteers digging up trees and shrubs from this future college site in the morning and then dig free plants for yourself! In the afternoon, we’ll pot-up the salvaged plants at the nursery where free potted plants are given away! The plants will be installed on King County environmental restoration projects, where they will help reduce erosion, shade streams and provide habitat.
