Trail Progress At Yesler Swamp

Friends of Yesler Swamp, a group which works at maintaining and upgrading Yesler Swamp, located in Laurelhurst bordered by NE 41st Street and Surber Drive, recently posted this on their website:

East Trail Progress

The Washington Conservation Corp started working again on the Yesler swamp trail on the East trail this spring. All the wood material is cedar. They are making a 4 ft wide boardwalk with four wider passing zones for wheelchairs.

They will return again  in late May to finish the trail which may take another 2 to 4 weeks.

Eastward Ho!

If indeed it will take that additional 2 weeks, we will need to raise more money.

You can donate either through the Seattle Parks Foundation or the UW Foundation.

You can also mail your check to Friends of Yesler Swamp,  Center for Urban Horticulture, 3501 NE 41st St., Seattle 98105.
