Your help is needed to improve forests and stream corridors.
Spend a day planting native trees and shrubs along the Cedar River, Issaquah Creek, Snoqualmie River, Soos Creek, or in Taylor Mountain Forest and Squak Mountain.
Native trees and shrubs create shade and protect streams from erosion and harmful runoff — meaning cleaner water, as well as food and shelter for wildlife.
King County Parks needs your help on several projects through the end of 2014. The following volunteer opportunities take place on Saturdays from 10 a.m. -2 p.m.
• Oct. 25: Cavanaugh Pond Natural Area (along the Cedar River, east of Renton)
• Nov. 1: Three Forks Natural Area (along the Snoqualmie River)
