Learn about and practice skills for community-based restoration at a free training hosted by the Green Redmond Partnership.

Restoration Techniques: Saturday, November 21st, at Grass Lawn Park, from 10am to 1pm.

We will focus on developing hands-on skills in effectively and efficiently removing blackberry, ivy, and other invasives, and planting native plants to re-establish a healthy forest. A discussion on community organizing and volunteer recruitment  will be held at lunch to help new neighborhood groups that are just starting out.

This training is intended for all current and prospective Forest Stewards, as well as anyone who is interested in becoming more involved in urban forest restoration. No committment to the Forest Steward program is necessary – just come ready to learn!
