GeekGirlCon Goes Outside & Works to Keep Seattle Green!
When: Sunday, August 28th
Where: Lewis Park
Time: 10am – 2pm
To sign up visit: Lewis Park Natural Area – 8/28
Forecasters say that, August 28th, the last Sunday of the month is expected to be a lovely day. And on this lovely Seattle day, GeekGirlCon staff and volunteers are needed to help restore green lands in Lewis Park on Beacon Hill. Any and all fans and supporters of GeekGirlCon, or nature, are welcome to attend. This is a chance to get outdoors, weed, mulch, smell the fresh air, and help clean up a park that has some amazing views! If you are under 18, please complete the online Youth Waiver form and bring it on the day of the event. Be sure to join this event on the Lewis Park Natural Area website.
Restoration of neighborhood green spaces is important to recreate the native plant and tree communities lost to logging, clearing, and take-over by invasive plants like ivy and blackberry. Native plant communities free of invasive species can survive drought and live longer, healthier lives to keep Seattle green.
Lewis Park Natural Area is part of the Green Seattle Partnership, a public/private partnership between the City of Seattle and the Cascade Land Conservancy. This partnership envisions a healthy, livable city with sustainable forested parklands. Over the years, countless volunteers have planted native species to restore the park, including Western red-cedar trees that could live 800 to 1000 years!
See you Sunday, August 28th!
Thank you kindly,
GeekGirlCon Community Outreach Coordinator
