Help restore the beautiful forest at North SeaTac Park! Community members have been transforming this area of ​​the park since the fall of 2020. A thick carpet of ivy covering the ground and the trunks of Douglas fir and Madrone trees – along with blackberry vines tangling the lower branches of the trees – have been cleared in a large area – and native plants are starting to regrow. We will focus on removing blackberry roots and vines around newly planted trees and shrubs and applying mulch to prevent regrowth. We can do some watering.

North SeaTac Park is an urban oasis of over 200 people below the flight paths of SeaTac Airport. Here, the trees clean, calm and refresh the air – true guardians of the community!

Meet in the park at the NE corner of Des Moines Memorial Dr. S. and S. 136th St. at SeaTac (map below).

Parking available on the north side of S. 136th adjacent to the park.

Registration and full details at: https://seatac.greencitypartnerships.org/event/67/.

Help transform a forest. North SeaTac Park is an urban oasis of over 200 people below the flight paths of SeaTac Airport. Here, the trees clean, calm and refresh the air – true guardians of the community!

We will be working in a corner of the park, under towering poplars and Douglas firs, which were almost completely overgrown with ivy carpeting the ground and climbing the tree trunks. Now this area is largely weed free and during two annual Green SeaTac days in 2021 and 2022 volunteers have planted cedars, firs and pines, snowberry, fringe cuts, salal , flowering currants and much more. Ongoing community help is needed to protect these new plantings so they can thrive and keep weeds at bay and the park beautiful.

Organized by the Green SeaTac Partnership, a collaborative effort between Forterra, City of SeaTac, King Conservation District, Partner in Education, Serve Ethiopians Washington, Port of Seattle and other nonprofits, businesses, community groups and volunteers .
