In addition to the four big events mentioned in our previous report, three other Saturday happenings meriting an advance reminder (did we mention, it’s a BIG day around West Seattle/White Center?):
GREEN UP DELRIDGE! North Delridge Neighborhood Council‘s Karrie Kohlhaas just sent one last reminder around:

When: Saturday, April 16th from 10am – 2pm. You can show up any time to help out, but if you want to join the Adopt-A-Street team, you may need to catch up to them along Delridge Way.

We provide: Tools, garbage bags and garbage pickers, hot drinks, paint.
Meet neighbors, lend a hand and feel proud that you care about your neighborhood.
WESTCREST PARK TREE-PLANTING: The more help, the merrier, here too. From Mike Shellenberger:
In conjunction with the HP3 runners’ event that starts at Big Al’s Brewing this Saturday, April 16th, the Green Seattle Alliance (GSA) Volunteers will be planting hundreds of native evergreen trees in Westcrest Park. The intent is to begin to replace the older deciduous trees, like maples and alders, that are reaching their life span with native longer lived evergreens like fir, cedars, pines etc…We can use as many volunteers as we can get. The more folks that volunteer, the more we can plant. Just show up at the Westcrest Park main parking lot on the west side of the Park near the Kids Play area at 9:15 AM Saturday and we’ll put you to work on this important project.. While volunteering, people can also walk the Park’s trails and view Spring’s new arrivals. For instance, the beautiful native trilliums are in full bloom..See you Saturday.
HP3: Billed as the first and only environmental-adventure race of its kind, this is a 16-mile course with multiple tasks, to be run for the first time tomorrow in eastern West Seattle/White Center – details here!
