Upcoming Volunteer Events to Enhance Our Community Habitat
Saturday March 8, 10am – 2pm, Evans Creek Preserve
Is Evans Creek Preserve your favorite Sammamish Park? Have you wanted to go but haven’t got around to it yet? No matter what the reason, save the date and join us at this volunteer event! Volunteers will be removing scotch broom, ivy and blackberry from two different areas near the parking lot. Don’t worry – the blackberry is still quite small. If you haven’t used a weed wrench yet this is the perfect opportunity. Our weed wrenches make pulling out scotch broom fun. Take a break from the volunteer work to check out the park – who knows, you might even find one of the gnomes! Register to volunteer at https://www.sammamish.us/events/Default.aspx?ID=3165

Celebrate Earth Day by volunteering in the Lower Sammamish Commons Native Plant Garden. This afterschool event is appropriate for all ages. Come dressed to work in the garden (no sandals, wear long pants and weather appropriate clothing). Bring work gloves if you have them. Tools and healthy afterschool snacks will be provided. Register at https://www.sammamish.us/events/Default.aspx?ID=3062.
Which park can you find deer, bear, rabbits, eagles, herons and a community garden? Lower Sammamish Commons, of course! This park is also home to our native plant garden. Volunteers have spent many hours repetitive weeding, planting, mulching and tending to the many native plants we have at this site. Join us for the annual spring cleanup and mulching event.
