Backyard Collective brings some sunshine to Seattle

August 2, 2011

Deanna at Conservation Alliance helped organized a crew of fantastic volunteers to work with the Green Seattle Partnership out at Westcrest Park a few weeks ago. A fun work party, and a great organization – “The Conservation Alliance is a group of outdoor industry companies that disburses its collective annual membership dues to grassroots environmental organizations. We direct our funding to community-based campaigns to protect threatened wild habitat, preferably where outdoor enthusiasts recreate. The Alliance was founded in 1989 by industry leaders REI, Patagonia, The North Face, and Kelty, who shared the goal of increasing outdoor industry support for conservation efforts. We now have more than 175 member companies, and plan to disburse $1,000,000 in 2011.”

On the Conservation Alliance blog, Deanna writes:

The sun was shining and volunteers were all smiles on Friday July 22nd at The Conservation Alliance Backyard Collective in Seattle’s Westcrest Park. More than 60 volunteers came out for the day from Outdoor Research, Nikwax, Brooks, Filson, Cascade Designs, Stanley, a brand of PMI, Clif Bar, Patagonia, and Runner Girl Races.

This great group of volunteers removed over 12,000 square feet of invasive ivy plant and created 23 tree survival rings.
