Nature Talk and Tour: Mineral Springs Park

Join EarthCorps and the City of Seattle's Parks Commons Program to learn about the ecology and history of Mineral Springs Park! Best known for its well-loved disc golf course and integrated "art walk", this neighborhood park is also home to native habitat right in the heart of North Seattle!

The Basics
This event will start with a presentation by EarthCorps Volunteer Specialists who will talk about the positive impacts of urban green spaces, the history and establishment of Mineral Springs Park, and how to identify the native species in the park. 

The presentation will be followed with a walking tour around Mineral Springs with EarthCorps' Ecologist to further explore and chat about the plants and ecology of the park.

This is a great event for anyone who wants to learn more about their local park, practice their plant ID skills, and connect with others over their love of park spaces! 

Special note: This is not a volunteer event and volunteer hours aren't available for attendance.
