Event description

Description

*If less than 20 volunteers sign up, this event will be canceled. We will notify you by email on Oct. 19 to let you know whether the event has enough participants or if it will be canceled.

Parr Creek has several hundred young plants on its banks that could use some mulch to help them survive. Right now each plant has a blue tube around it designed to protect it for the first several years of its life. Now that the plants have established their roots, King Conservation District is ready to remove the blue tubes. But first we want to add mulch around the outside of each plant to give it some extra protection and nourishment.

WHO: All ages are welcome, but kids under age 14 must have adult supervision at all times.

WHAT: Volunteers will collect buckets of mulch from a pile, carry the buckets to the plants along both sides of Parr Creek, and spread mulch around the blue tube that surrounds each plant.

WHERE: Parr Creek between Northshore YMCA and Woodinville Montessori in the North Creek Business Park

WHAT TO WEAR: Dress for the weather and wear shoes with good stability, as we'll be mulching rain or shine...or whatever comes in between.

WHERE TO PARK: Use any of the available spots in the Woodinville Montessori parking lot (19102 North Creek Pkwy).

WE WILL PROVIDE: Mulch, gloves, buckets, coffee, and refreshments.

REQUIRED LIABILITY WAIVERS: Parents or guardians of participants under age 14 must fill out this liability waiver, bring it with you to the event, and provide a copy of your insurance card.

If you're 14 and older, you will fill out a separate liability waiver on site when you check in at the event.

SUPERVISION: Kids under age 14 must be supervised by an adult. There must be one designated adult supervisor for every three kids.
