Volunteer Event at Former Wayne Golf Course
Hosted by Whale Scout in partnership with King County Noxious Weed Program, City of Bothell, and Bothell Parks & Recreation.
Saturday, April 22, 2023
10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Blyth Park large picnic shelter: 16950 W Riverside Drive, Bothell, WA 98011 (Directions)
Park at Blyth Park and meet under the large picnic shelter to sign in. We will walk over to the work site at the Former Wayne Golf Course together from there.
What we'll do
Celebrate Earth Day by helping remove invasive plants along the edge of the forest at the Former Wayne Golf Course! Healthy riparian forests are essential for absorbing excess rain and controlling erosion of river banks, which helps protect young salmon. Planting will take place in the Back Nine of the park.
All are welcome! Consider signing up your household for a fun, educational, family outing. Participants under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, under 18 need a signed release form by a parent.
Please sign up, as there is a participation limit for safety. You'll receive a confirmation email 2-3 days prior to the event.
