Saving Fairmount Ravine’s trees: Cleanup-followup report

Thanks to Keith Schieron for sharing the photos and report:

This morning we held an event to cut ivy and other invasive species in the Fairmount Ravine.

This event was held as a followup to last month’s Fairmount Ravine cleanup event. While last month we focused on garbage, this weekend we focused on getting the ivy and other invasive species under control. The Seattle Parks Department supplied tools and hand outs about the value of the native trees and forests here in our lovely city.

We had nine volunteers out to help, including two of our longest-serving volunteers, John Lang and Blair Constantine, who have been part of the Fairmount Ravine yearly project for twenty-one years!

The group cleared ivy from the base of nearly thirty trees and we built the spirit of community that makes living in West Seattle so special.

Thanks to all of the volunteers for sharing their Saturday morning with us!
