Thanks for your interest in volunteering with GRP! However, as the City of Redmond is doing our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19, we are cancelling volunteer programs starting March 13 and going through April 13. Please continue to check back here for updated information and opportunities to get involved as soon as we are cleared to restart volunteer events. If you have any other questions during this time regarding volunteering, please reach out to greenredmond@forterra.org.

Arthur Johnson Park - MLK Day of Service ...01/20/2020

Activities

Have fun, do good, and get involved with the Green Redmond Partnership! Join our Forest Steward at Arthur Johnson Park for a fun morning alongside your friends, burn some calories, and help keep our forests green and healthy! We’ll be removing invasive weeds to make room for trees and native plants to thrive.

Everyone can help! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. We will provide all of the tools and training needed. Friends and family members are welcome, but please RSVP in advance to help us plan for a great event.

Open to the public

All ages OK

16 out of 30 volunteers registered.

What to Bring

What to Bring: A water bottle, a snack if you want one, tough clothes, and shoes that can get dirty (because they will). Please wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt to protect against prickly blackberry. Closed-toed shoes are required: work boots, hiking boots, or running shoes are all fine. Remember to check the weather and bring appropriate layers, and rain gear as needed.

Where to Meet

We will be meeting at the main entrance to Arthur Johnson at 9am for a quick introduction and tool pickup. After that we will be working on the far corner of the park off of 196th across the meadow.

Where to Park

Unfortunately with the past flooding and current snow melt our usual parking area is too soft to park cars. Please park in the wide shoulder next to the park on Union Hill near the roundabout and in the parking spots next to the roundabout on 196th. If you park on Union Hill please keep an extra eye out for cars as you exit and enter the park.

Date & Time

January 20, 2020 9am - 12pm
