Come help to restore habitat in the Union Bay Natural Area! The Union Bay Natural Area (UBNA) is a story of hope for reversing human-caused degradation to our ecosystems. Once a thriving marsh, for over 40 years UBNA was filled with trash, serving as a city landfill. After closure, the landfill was capped and the area was dedicated as a natural area and 'living laboratory' for ecological restoration. Be a part of the solution, and join a team of volunteers to remove invasive species and plant native plants, crucial parts of restoring the landscape to functioning habitat for wildlife and humans alike.

RSVP Online

Meet in the courtyard outside the Miller Library. Gloves and tools will be provided. Please wear closed toed shoes, clothes that can get dirty, a rain jacket (always a chance of rain in Seattle!) and a water bottle.

If you are late text Jon Backus at 707-529-5257 to find out where we are working that day.…
