Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day to everyone out there in the Green Cities, and beyond!

Get out there and do something this weekend (like volunteering in your favorite park or natural area in Kent, Kirkland, Redmond, Tacoma, or Seattle) . . . and then make every day Earth Day.

Here are some images from the very first Earth Day to get you going this Friday.


Composting On-Site

Green City Partnerships encourage Stewards to compost their invasive plant waste on-site when applicable. Check out this great video to show how to make a top-notch compost pile.  Special thanks to the 2008-2009 Washington Conservation Corps Crew for making this great video.  For more information about building compost piles on-site, and other Best Management Practices for Urban Forest Restoration check out the Forest Steward Field Guide: http://greenseattle.org/forest-steward-resources-1/forest-steward-field-guide
