If you can pull some ivy, the place to do it to make a BIG difference this Saturday (April 5th) is the Fairmount Ravine. You’ll recall that the annual ravine cleanup last month was followed up by a plan for a second session to save the greenbelt from all that ivy. It’s set for Saturday, and Sarah Schieron sends an update:
This afternoon my husband and I met with Michael Yadrick, an ecologist with the City of Seattle in the Fairmount Ravine. He gave us some history of the space and a better understanding of current work taking place in this greenbelt.
We also learned that if our community makes a bigger commitment to this space, the city will as well.
So, we are especially hoping for some able bodies this Saturday at 9 am. The City is lending us tools, signage (seen below), and orange vests. Please plan to join us!
Meet at Fairmount and Forest, just east of Hiawatha.
