Magnuson Wetlands

Wetlands at Warren G. Magnuson Park
Seattles urban wetland systems need constant vigilance. Wetlands are vital eco areas for creating diverse habitats and providing rich educational opportunities. They have natural filters for pollutants which help to keep our open waterways clean and healthy. Join our volunteer events and we will keep the invasive plants at bay while the native plants become established. This beautiful site has a lot of bird species, pacific chorus frogs, voles, and other creatures that you may see during the volunteer projects.

When: Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 12 noon, rain or shine. Dress for the weather, wear water proof boots or sturdy shoes and bring yourself water. We provide gloves, tools and instructions. Meet: Enter Magnuson Park from NE 65th St, continue east 1/4 of a mile, turn left into a large parking lot across from the USGS Western Fisheries Research Center. Meet a staff member near the tool box in the NE corner.

Become a Site Steward in Magnusons beautiful wetlands. Learn how to lead small weekly or monthly work parties to help enhance and preserve Warren G. Magnusons Wetlands. You will learn how to identify a variety of invasive plants and native species. Then lead volunteers in the removal of invasive plants and restoration planting projects.
