Where: Blakely Harbor Park
When: Saturday, January 13, February 10, March 9 (2nd Saturday), 10:00a-12:00p
What: Join the Park District, IslandWood, and the Bainbridge Island Parks & Trails Foundation every second Saturday this winter in the ongoing restoration of Blakley Harbor Park! Thousands of volunteer hours have already been logged, helping transform the site of the former largest mill in the world. Volunteers will help remove invasive species, spread mulch to discourage regrowth, and plant native species where invasives have been controlled.
Well suited for children ages six and up who are comfortable using small hand tools and walking off trail on uneven surfaces.
IslandWood is an environmental education nonprofit serving children, educators, and community members throughout the Puget Sound region. We were founded to increase access and lower financial barriers to nature-based learning for our region’s children. We design and deliver programs in Seattle, Woodinville, Renton, Tacoma, and Bainbridge Island that can inspire a lifetime of passion and care for the natural world and the planet.
