Volunteer Event This Weekend To Clean Up Invasive Weeds
Are you looking for something to do this weekend? Perhaps volunteering? Our friends over at Love Licton and Trees for Seattle are hosting an event this weekend. Here’s what they sent us:
Help neighbors clean up the gateway to the community! Meet at the intersection of N 85th St and Meridian Ave N on Saturday, October 6th from 9AM to noon. Volunteers will be removing the invasive weeds that threaten the area’s beautiful trees. This is a great opportunity to make your mark on a landscape that needs some love while connecting with friends and neighbors. No experience necessary. Tools, gloves, snacks, and instruction are provided. Please dress for the weather and wear close-toed shoes.
Elliot Stoller just shared his video of this year’s Luminata with us. So many illuminated costumes! Check it out.
