West Seattle’s mysterious Fairmount Ravine needs you – March 9th!

(Part of the 2010 Fairmount Ravine volunteer annual-cleanup crew)
Their 20th annual cleanup in 2012 netted a “vintage” 7-Up bottle – estimated to be half a century old. In 2008, discoveries included a car door. What will turn up in beautiful, mysterious Fairmount Ravine, beneath the Admiral Way bridge, during this year’s cleanup? Be part of the team that finds out – one week from tomorrow, Saturday, March 9th. Devoted neighbors, friends, and visiting volunteers will join forces over the course of two hours – also enjoying treats from Metropolitan Market and Zatz Bagels (both WSB sponsors) – 8:30 am to 10:30 am. From organizers:

Meet at the top of the hill at Fairmount and Forest – directly east of Hiawatha Park.

Please wear gloves, boots and old clothes as we remove garbage and invasive plants.

Here’s our coverage from past years – 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008.

    I am wondering if you ever call the police on the things you find in case they are stolen property?

    It’s disheartening that the work of these wonderful volunteers is so thoughtlessly undone, year after year.

    Curious what if any connection there is between Fairmount Ravine (in Admiral) and Fairmount Park, Fairmount Springs in mid-WS?

    I wonder what happens if they find evidence of a homeless person living there…

Sorry, comment time is over.
