Pitch in at the park
Be a good steward and help care for Everett’s Hannabrook Park from 9 a.m. to noon on Jan. 18 at the park, 5815 Brookridge Blvd.
Two years ago, much of this park’s natural areas were just blackberry patches. Thanks to the hard work of nearby neighbors, this park has an extremely productive wetland habitat with lots of native trees and shrubs growing. But there is still more work to be done.
Volunteers will be working to remove weeds, plant native trees and shrubs, and care for plants. Most of the work is fairly physical, but there are tasks that all ages and abilities can help out with.
Wear sturdy shoes. Bring a water bottle or coffee cup. Tools, instruction, and work gloves provided.
The event is hosted by Forterra NW and part of the Green Everett Partnership Vision for healthy forested parklands supported by an engaged community working together to protect and maintain public resources.
