Family Month returns to Woodinville
NW News Staff
October is Family Month in Woodinville. It is a time to celebrate the family and the community. Throughout the month, events are planned that are both fun and educational for all members of the family and improve the community as a whole.
The month kicks off Oct. 2 with a Family Field Trip to see salmon spawning in upper Bear Creek along with an opportunity to talk with steward Ray Heller on Oct. 2. The event, which will be repeated Oct. 9, and 11, is hosted by Woodinville Water Tenders. Call Ray at 296-8391 for details.
The Kiwanis Club of Woodinville invites the community to help them clean up a quarter-mile stretch of the Burke-Gilman Trail Oct. 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This section will ultimately connect the Wilmot Gateway Park and Woodin Park. This year the project will be replacing lost trees, and the Kiwanis Club hopes to plant new 5 to 7 ft. trees. If you or your organization wishes to adopt a tree, check out Olympic Nursery (483-9254) which has a display of trees and shrubs for revegetation of the slough. The nursery will offer a special price and will hold your tree until Saturday morning when they will make a special free delivery to the site. Bring your family, a picnic lunch and the Kiwanis Club will provide punch for everyone. Some tools will be available, but if you have garden gloves, bring them along with shovels, rakes and pruners. For information on this event, call 486-6391 or 481-6959.
