Magnuson Park Live Stake Bed Maintenance

At this event, we will be weeding and pruning to promote healthy live-stake growth for harvest this fall season.

The Basics

EarthCorps supplies gloves, tools, water and snack bars. We will teach you everything you need to know about tool use, safety, forest health, and the importance of the work you will be doing.  Be sure to sign in at registration when you arrive.
 

For your safety and comfort please bring:

  • Clothing that can get dirty (because it will!)
  • Long pants and long sleeves (helps protect against prickly plants)
  • Sturdy shoes that can handle some mud (closed toed shoes are required such as work boots, hiking boots, rubber boots, etc.NO sandals, flats or heels)
  • Rain gear and warm layers -OR- sun protection (check the weather!)
  • Sack lunch and snacks (to refuel)
  • Full water bottle (we will have a jug on-site for re-fills)
  • Travel mug for tea/coffee
  • If you have a favorite pair of gloves, feel free to bring them (otherwise we're happy to provide a pair)
The event will happen rain or shine!

What will volunteers be doing at the event?

This special project is in collaboration with the Green Seattle Partnership (GSP) and Washington Native Plant Society. The Magnuson Park cutting beds are a source of plant material for propagation for GSP restoration sites city-wide.
