UW Restoration Ecology Network students need your help in Yesler Swamp! 


The 2013-2014 UW REN restoration of Yesler Swamp is well on the way but we could use a hand. We will be removing more invasive plants, mulching, and planting. If you would like an opportunity to help out in your local community, we’d love to have your support.


We will be removing invasive species and mulching on: 

Sunday, February 23, 2014 – 10am to 3pm 


We will finish mulching and start planting native species on:

Saturday, March 8, 2014, 10am to 3pm


To RSVP, or if you have questions, please email Amy Stephens at aamys6@uw.edu or email Elyse Denkers at edenkers@gmail.com


Where to meet: UW Center for Urban Horticulture, 3501 NE 41st St., Seattle, 98105. We will be located at the Yesler Swamp trailhead in the CUH parking lot. Sign in sheets will be located here. 


What to bring: Dress appropriately for the weather (rain or shine) and be sure to wear clothes that are tough and can get dirty. Closed-toe shoes are required. Rain or waterproof work boots preferred. Also bring a water bottle. We will have a water jug to refill your bottle.


Tools, water, snacks, and gloves will be provided.


Looking forward meeting new volunteers!
