With the old Group Health Overlake campus in Redmond slated for redevelopment, Eastside Audubon invites the community to a work party on Saturday morning, Dec. 1, to salvage the native plants currently growing at the site.
At the Group Health-approved event, we'll be digging up plants that otherwise would be destroyed to save them for replanting later in the winter on the Audubon BirdLoop at Marymoor Park. Eastside Audubon has been continually improving wildlife habitat at the BirdLoop since 2006 through monthly work parties.
You won't need special expertise to help with the native plant salvage; you’ll need only a shovel, work gloves, sturdy shoes, and clothing layers appropriate for the weather. Eastside Audubon project leaders will help identify which plants to remove and explain how to do it.
We'll also bring the coffee and snacks!
Work will start at 8 a.m. and continue until noon. The Group Health campus is in the Overlake area of Redmond, at 2464 152nd Avenue NE.
To help us plan, please sign up in advance of the event by contacting Tim McGruder, (425) 822-8580, or email@example.com. Details about where to meet will be given to volunteers upon sign-up.
