Everyone is invited to join in a pair of upcoming work parties to restore Yesler Swamp, one of the few remaining swamps along Lake Washington. A group of UW Environmental Science students are organizing the volunteer opportunities on February 25 and March 3 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. as part of a capstone project. You can sign up here to be a volunteer.
Yesler Swamp is located on the east side of UW's Center for Urban Horticulture, and provides an opportunity for visitors to observe a wetland ecosystem. The volunteer work parties will concentrate on removing invasive plant species from the swamp. There will be additional work parties in the spring to plant native species in the area as well.
For more information, see the volunteer sign-up form.
