COMMUNITY GIVING: See where West Seattle is a little greener after Green Seattle Day

Me-Kwa-Mooks is one of the West Seattle spots that’s greened up after a chilly morning of hard work by Green Seattle Day volunteers today. (Thanks to C. Parrs for the photos above and below!)

During the Green Seattle Day work parties, our photographer stopped by two other spots where volunteers were planting trees and shrubs – in Highland Park, volunteers worked east of the off-leash area at Westcrest Park, where some Friday snow was still on the ground:

And in east Admiral, the Duwamish Head Greenbelt drew dozens of volunteers to work at 34th and City View, one of the sites where the city is restoring damage done by illegal tree-cutting:

Steve Richmond from Garden Cycles was leading the work today, and told us they were planting larger evergreens as well as understory plants such as ferns.

The city is committed to work at the east Admiral restoration sites for five years, Jon Jainga from Parks noted.

The 21 Green Seattle Day sites with work parties today included two others in West Seattle – Camp Long and Lincoln Park.

    Too bad the people responsible for cutting down the trees to “improve” their views didn’t participate. But thank you, everyone else, for all you do!
