For the second consecutive Saturday, valiant volunteers are helping the Walking On Logs Landscape Restoration Group literally dig in at one of West Seattle’s “gateway” spots – around the “Walking on Logs” sculptures on the slope west of the Fauntleroy Way SW end of the WS Bridge. There’s still time to go join them – they are working till about 4 and would appreciate even an hour or two of your time; today they’re planting, as part of a project to re-landscape the often-overgrown area. Access is via the frontage stretch of Fauntleroy upslope from the work zone, which you can reach from the eastward turn on 35th, just north of the bridge exit/entrance. (Thanks for sending the photo!)
4:28 PM UPDATE: Stopped by just before 4 – volunteers had wrapped up, but check out the empty planting containers in the foreground, showing how much they planted!
You can see the landscaping plan – funded in part by a city grant – in this story from earlier this month.
9:09 PM UPDATE: One of the Landscape Restoration Group volunteers, Sharonn Meeks, tells WSB the group planted 75 trees and 500 shrubs and indigenous plants, and volunteers “worked their hearts out.” Also from the group, Nancy Driver sent another photo:
Nancy promises an update later this week on today’s accomplishments and what’s next.
