The Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) recently completed the first phase of the Yesler Swamp boardwalk. The boardwalk, made of cedar planks, begins on the west side of swamp area and extends out to the Yesler Swamp lagoon. It includes two overlooks so visitors can pause to enjoy the incredible surroundings. Getting this section of the boardwalk built is a major accomplishment!
Now, our fantastic Yesler Swamp volunteers are excavating the path in the drier portions of Yesler Swamp that eventually will be paved in gravel.
Later this fall the WCC will return to build new sections of the boardwalk
Everyone is invited to help us celebrate our progress and tour the swamp during our event on September 21, 2-4 p.m. at the Center for Urban Horticulture. Faculty, staff and dignitaries will give brief (!) speeches. Donations to further our work gladly accepted. We’ll party, come rain or shine!
