June Is a Great Month to Get Outside!

Lake Forest Park Stewardship Foundation has been doing fantastic work for 2 
decades to restore Environmental Resources in their watersheds and beyond.

A good time to engage and get involved with a great group and worthwhile project.

Dear Janet, 

The spring rains haven't stopped yet, but it is getting warmer. 
It is a great season to roll up your sleeves and join us for a few hours
in the woods. We'll be pulling ivy and tackling blackberry brambles.
On these two Saturdays in June we'll be joining forces with Friends of
the Cedar River Watershed
Please put June 19th and June 26th on your calendar and make
plans to join us.
Students are encouraged to participate.  All are 

GLOVES AND BOOTS Please wear gloves and dress for the 
weather.  Ace Hardware in Towne Center has donated 
some gloves, but if you have your own, bring them.

Bring some water in a reusable bottle.
There will be a snacks, courtesy of the Lake Forest Park 

Garden Club.
30th Ave NE and NE 165th Street.  Go south on 28th 
from NE 178th in Lake Forest Park and drive about 
1/2 mile 
until just before the road turns.  You'll see Grace Cole 
Nature Park on your right.  

Students can earn Community Service hours.

We look forward to a nice day, hopefully a sunny one!
