Nature Talk and Tour: Roxhill Park

Join EarthCorps and the City of Seattle's Parks Commons Program to learn about the ecology and history of Roxhill Park! Best known for its ancient peat bog that stands at the headwaters of Longfellow Creek, this neighborhood park is one of the most biodiverse natural areas in 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 Roxhill Park, and how to identify the native species in the park. 

The presentation will be followed with a walking tour around Roxhill 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.
