Lake Forest Park Stewardship Announcements and Events

LFPSF is a remarkable organization that works for quality habitat and community through unified efforts to protect and improve the environment in their community. Lake Forest Park borders Shoreline and shares some of our Urban Forest and Wildlife Corridors. They are a very worthwhile organization to support.

Planting Work Party at Whisper Creek

Come help put plants in the ground at Whisper Creek!  Please join us in restoring this reclaimed natural area along a quiet creek in the Cedarbrook neighborhood.

LOCATION: The site is behind (north of) the playground of the closed Cedarbrook school.  Cedarbrook School is on Perkins Way across from 20th Ave NE. The site can also be accessed from Lago Place by going south on 20th Ave NE, or from 18th Ave NE by going east on NE 
190th Street. There may be many small fry soccer games in progress in the playground, but best place to park is in the school parking lot.

INFO: We'll need shovels (some will be provided) and a couple of wheel barrows.  Dress for the weather.  It may be muddy. Snacks will be provided. 
Students, this is an opportunity to earn Community Service hours.

LFP Tree Inventory

Mike Woodbury and volunteers are half-way through the tree inventory to create a baseline view of our total LFP tree canopy, but they still need help on the remaining 50 plots. The scientific creation of a baseline of our tree inventory is a step toward developing reasonable requirements for tree replacement and preservation.  It's a tool needed for preservation of our tree canopy.  This will help our streams, wetlands and habitats.  The survey is headed by a retired professional forest expert.   
If you can volunteer at least 3 hours in October to help in this effort, please choose a specific time slot (or slots) at and let Mike know your contact information. If you received a request to have a small plot on your property inventoried but have not yet responded, please contact Mike. 
You can contact Mike either by email, or phone, 206-659-4288.

Mark your calendars for our FALL FUNDRAISER

"Celebrating Our Watershed"
Friday, November 12th at the LFP Civic Club
More information to come!
