Age group: All ages
Geographic area: King County

King County's parks and natural stream and wetland areas need your help. Your class can work to preserve these areas any time of the year. Plant native trees and shrubs in the fall, weed and mulch in the spring, or work at the King County Nursery throughout the year to pot up native plants. This is an important step in protecting our natural resources and showing a commitment to our community. View the online calendar for upcoming events in your neighborhood.
