Community Invited To View Final Plan For Yesler Swamp Trail Followed By Walk On Sunday

On Sunday, Friends of Yesler Swamp, is having a community meeting and swamp walk to celebrate the final plan for the Yesler Swamp Trail from 1-3pm at the Center for Urban Horticulture (3500 NE 41Street.)

An indoor meeting, with refreshments, will include SBA LandscapeArchitects showing the design for the Trail, reporting on the environmental protections and permits, and answering questions. 

The permanent Trail will provide much better access to volunteers who will continue to remove invasive plants and install natives.

Following the meeting will be the swamp walk which will follow the route of the planned path included in the final plan.

"With a permanent, accessible Trail through Yesler Swamp, the community can explore this unique area any time of the year. From small children to seniors, those seeking a bit of the natural world in the midst of our hectic urban landscape can traverse a winding trail of discovery unlike any other in the Seattle area." the website says.

All are welcome, including children.
