Parr Creek, March 2018

There are several hundred plants on the banks of Parr Creek that could use some mulch to help them survive. Right now each plant has a blue tube around it designed to protect it for the first few years of its life. Now that the plants are established, King Conservation District is ready to remove the blue tubes soon. But first we want to add mulch around the outside of each plant to give it some extra protection and nourishment.

When:

Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018 from 9 a.m. to noon

Where:

Parr Creek between Northshore YMCA and Woodinville Montessori in the North Creek Business Park

What:

Volunteers will collect buckets of mulch from a pile, carry the buckets to the plants along both sides of Parr Creek, and spread mulch around the blue tube that surrounds each plant

Who:

All ages are welcome, but kids under age 14 must have adult supervision at all times

What to wear:

Dress for the weather and wear shoes with good stability, as we'll be mulching rain or shine...or whatever comes in between

Where to park:

Use any of the available spots in the Woodinville Montessori parking lot (19102 North Creek Pkwy)

We will provide:

Mulch, gloves, buckets, coffee, and refreshments
