Description

Come help us restore habitat in the Union Bay Natural Area (UBNA)!

Before being designated a natural area, UBNA served as a public landfill for over 40 years. Mounds of trash were dumped on top of what was a thriving marsh ecosystem on the shore of Lake Washington. But hope lies in the fate of UBNA as ecological restoration works to bring back wildlife habitat through the removal of invasive weeds and planting native plants.

Feel free to join us for some good ol' fun in the dirt and learn about UBNA and ecological restoration! On Fridays throughout the quarter from 2:00-4:00, we will be hosting work parties where you can participate in a variety of ecological restoration tasks! Please meet in the gravel parking lot in front of the Douglas Research Conservatory Building at the Center for Urban Horticulture.

Everyone is welcome and no experience is needed. Gloves, tools, and snacks are provided for all volunteers! Dress ready for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, be prepared to get dirty, and don’t forget your water bottle!

If you are volunteering to earn course credit, please be reminded that only those who have pre-registered prior to the event will be able to participate and receive credit.
