Deadhorse Canyon Planting Day

10125 Holyoake Way S, Seattle
RSVP here

King Conservation District (KCD) is working in partnership with the City of Seattle through the Green Seattle Partnership and Trees for Seattle, to engage residents adjacent to forested restoration sites, like Lakeridge Park (a.k.a. Deadhorse Canyon). KCD has identified three private property owners immediately adjacent to Lakeridge Park to demonstrate healthy backyard stewardship practices to neighbors, and the work will be ongoing through this fall and winter. 

The first part of the restoration work has been completed: removing invasives. Now the fun part comes in, planting natives! Join DIRT Corps for the planting party at this resident's place. Little by little, through work and education, Deadhorse Canyon will be kept restored and not taken over with Himalayan blackberries, English ivy, and other noxious weeds.
