Fall Planting Day with EarthCorps
Saturday October 6th
at Farrel-McWhirter Park
Join a group of CKC families for this event held through the Green Redmond Partnership. Join EarthCorps and the Green Redmond Partnership as we work in Farrel-McWhirter Park! The plan for the day is to plant trees and shrubs along Mackey Creek and in the adjacent wetlands. Mackey Creek flows through Farrel-McWhirter Park and is home to local coho salmon and cutthroat trout. The stream and wetlands need some extra help so come and make them a healthier place for wildlife!
EarthCorps will supply gloves, tools, water and snack bars. They will teach you everything you need to know about tool use, safety, forest health, and the importance of the work you will be doing. No prior experience necessary, just come ready to learn something new!
Children under 14 must attend with a parent/guardian. If you will be attending with a child who you are not a legal guardian of, please fill out the permission slip located on the EarthCorps Registration site.
