Fremont Troll (Troll's Knoll)
Saturday, February 27
Intersection of N 36th St and Winslow Pl N
2 Shifts: 9 am - 11 am OR 12 pm - 2 pm
5 volunteer limit in each shift

Help care for a Seattle landmark! While the Fremont Troll is a major Seattle tourist destination for its quirky public art, there are several trees growing at this site that are major contributors to Seattle's urban forest. The oaks and pines growing nearby not only provide a comfortable ambiance to the area but also help filter noise and pollution from the adjacent highway 99 for the Fremont neighborhood. Volunteers will remove weeds growing at the base of these trees and provide them with nourishing mulch to help them live their best and healthy lives.
Several new volunteer protocols are in place to keep everyone safe including mandatory mask-wearing and social distancing. Shifts will have no more than 5 volunteers at a time so spots are limited, and RSVP is required. Volunteer walk-ups that did not register in advanced will be turned awayEmail Charlie at cvogelheim@forterra.org to RSVP with your preferred shift
