Seattle’s 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: Saturday’s 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 Magnuson’s beautiful wetlands. Learn how to lead small weekly or monthly work parties to help enhance and preserve Warren G. Magnuson’s 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.

Promontory Point Habitat Enhancement Project
Work at Promontory Point has been underway since 1999. A celebration
of the progress volunteers have made in restoring the area was held in
November 2000. Volunteers are still needed for ongoing tasks to restore
and maintain the natural setting and for special projects. MESA works
throughout the year at the site, installing native plants and removing
non-native ones. Work parties meet regularly on the second Sundays and
third Thursdays at the Promontory Point Education Pavilion. Parties start
at 10 a.m. Tools and gloves are available. For groups of five or more
MESA will make special arrangements.
Upcoming work parties
Work parties are held on the 2nd Sunday and 3rd Thursday
of each month.
