Yesler Swamp Work Party On Saturday



The Friends of Yesler Swamp is having a work party on Saturday from 10-3pm to work on the eastern part of the Yesler Swamp trail near the Beaver Lodge in mitigation zones W8 and W9, in partnership with UW Students, who make up the Community Engagement Committee

Friends of Yesler Swamp are partners with UW students in restoring Yesler Swamp and engaging the community in educational events.  The students are committed to working for two years to preserve, protect, and maintain Yesler Swamp.
Yesler Swamp, located in Laurelhurst, is bordered by NE 41st St. and Surber Drive, is maintained by a group of volunteer neighbors, who have been publishing many interesting new posts on the history of Yesler Swamp, including historic photos, videos, source notes and more.

They work party invitation says:
Volunteers should meet at the Yesler Swamp trail sign at eastern Center for Urban Horticulture parking lot (3501 NE 41st Street) at 10:00 am
If arriving later than 10:00 am: Follow the sidewalk along 41st and then take a right on Surber, then look for the trail down below the sidewalk on the right. Take that trail, then take a left towards the eastern part of the swamp and you will run into us. You can also give Carolyn Foster a call at 360-773-5228 when you arrive at the Center for Urban Horticulture and she will come meet you.
