Nature

With fall upon us, it's nearly time for our restoration program to switch into planting mode! In the next couple weeks, we're going to be receiving more than 5,000 native trees and shrubs, all of which need to go into the forests of West Seattle!

We're planning large community events at two of our finest parks to kick-off the planting season and get these wonderful natives into the ground. On SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, we'll be hosting a big event at Pigeon Point Park starting at 10 am, where volunteers will help us plant more than 1,000 native trees and shrubs as part of the years-long restoration of the park. And on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3, we'll be at Camp Long starting at 9 am as part of Green Seattle Day, a citywide effort to restore the Emerald City's forests!

Like many urban forests, the West Duwamish Greenbelt and the Longfellow Creek Watershed have both suffered the effects of logging, invasive species, urbanization, and loss of biodiversity. DNDA is committed to restoring the forests of Delridge and West Seattle to the kind of healthy evergreen forest the Pacific Northwest is known for.
