Help us restore habitat at Licton Springs Park

Posted by: Katherine Steen, Education

Want to join a Woodland Park Zoo team restoring habitat for wildlife at Licton Springs Park? Sign up for a habitat restoration event with us and EarthCorps!

Back on May 16, our zoo team had a great time with EarthCorps and community volunteers restoring habitat at Golden Gardens Park. And now, we’re doing it again!

This summer WPZ invites you to share the habitat by taking action to protect and restore wildlife habitat around the world and in our own backyards. On Saturday, July 11th, a team of zoo staff, volunteers, and friends will be joining Earth Corps and the Green Seattle Partnership for a restoration event at Licton Springs Park in north Seattle.

Add it to your calendar!
Saturday, July 11th, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

What to expect:
You'll be side by side with zoo staff and volunteers planting native trees, shrubs, and ground cover.

EarthCorps will provide gloves, tools, water, light refreshments (coffee, tea, water and donuts!) and a talk that covers safety, environmental restoration and the overview of the project.

What to bring:
We suggest that restoration volunteers dress in layers of older clothes that include long pants, long sleeve shirt and a jacket. Durable footwear such as work boots, hiking boots or running shoes are recommended for these events. These events take place rain or shine so please come prepared for the weather. Bring a lunch as well as water and a coffee cup/travel mug for refreshments. Please do not wear open toe shoes or sandals.

How to sign up:
· Click on this link to the event
· Click on "Sign up for this event"
· If you're a new Earth Corps volunteer, click the "Sign up" button next to "I'm a new volunteer." If you're a returning EarthCorps volunteer, enter your email and password.
· Click on "I'm volunteering as part of a group" and enter Woodland Park Zoo as the Group Name

We hope to see you there!
