Earthcorps Making Trails in Shoreline

Today, Earthcorps, a non-profit that contracts with the City of Shoreline to do environmental restoration projects is beginning work on improving trails in Paramount Park Natural Area.
Earthcorps brings students from around the world to
learn about environmental stewardship and
restoration practices.

They are being funded from the 2006 Parks, Open Space and Recreation Bond passed by Shoreline Voters.

The "Trails" section of that bond has been used to improve and build trails throughout the city since it was passed.

This trail leads from 10th Ave NE North of the park, down the hill to NE 148th, (which are both just discontinued roads now) and back over to 12th NE. This will improve the eroded trail and prevent some of the runoff from entering Littles Creek (we hope). The crossing over Littles Creek is dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians because of the overtopping that happens with heavy rains.

Let's hope this fix will last a while and make it a safer and more environmentally friendly trail.

Thanks for your help Earthcorps!!
