The Work Goes on in 2017 --   And YOU can Help!

For nearly 10 years this group has been working on restoring habitat along the Burke-Gilman Trail.  Members of the group are now working along almost 4 miles of the trail stretching from University Village up to Inverness Drive NE. 

Volunteers are the heart-beat of organizations such as ours.  For us the volunteers are almost exclusively ones who come out to one of our work events -- clearing invasive non-native plants, mulching and planting native plants.   In 2016 nearly 8000 hours were donated by more than 2000 volunteers!!  During this period over 6000 plants were installed along the trail.

We get lots of people who walk, run or ride by and say "Thanks" and we want all you to know that you too can help.  As we work on more sections of the trail we are in need of others to help by providing Administrative assistance and Donations to help fund the tools and plants we need to continue the work at the level of the past year.

Check out our Contacts and Donations pages to help us out even if you are unable to work on the trail!

See the Events Calendar for information on signing up for special events and regular work parties.
