Salmon Creek Park – For a Fungi to Grow, You Must Give it as Mushroom as Possible

June 2 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Join us for weed pulling and restoration at Salmon Creek Park! We’ll be removing weeds, like English ivy, blackberry, and stinky Bob, enjoying some tunes, and gettin’ dirt under those fingernails. Let’s remove as much as possible and create space for the native species to thrive this summer. All ages welcome.

We’ll cover forest health, tool use, and safety. No experience necessary – just come ready to get a little dirty, help your community, and restore this land.

Dress for the weather, you might have to wear a raincoat! Please wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. We will have gloves and tools for everyone.

Register online.
