Madrona Woods, Seattle
Saturday, Dec 8 ~ 10am – 2pm
Madrona Woods is a 9-acre urban forest across the street from the west shore of Lake Washington, home to bald eagles, hummingbirds, and salamanders. FCRW is teaming up with Friends of Madrona Woods in a partnership to restore this beautiful neighborhood resource to a more natural and sustainable state! Two streams have been daylighted, acres of blackberry and other invasive plants have been removed, and now volunteers can help continue the progress by planting hundreds of native trees and shrubs. All ages and skill levels welcome.

Saturday, Dec 15 ~ 10am – 2pm
Bring your family out for a day of planting trees along the Cedar River! The Cedar River is a valuable resource for our community; its headwaters are in an ecological forest preserve that provides clean drinking water for over one million residents, it supports numerous recreational activities, year-round, and it supports federally-listed threatened salmon populations. Volunteers will help improve wildlife habitat and water quality, restoring the Cedar River floodplain by planting native trees and shrubs. A salmon journey naturalist will be onsite during the lunch hour to talk about the remarkable journey of salmon up the Cedar River. This is a great project for families.
