Volunteers needed for Horse Creek Releaf Project
In honor of the City of Bothell's commitment to protecting water quality and natural resources, the Departments of Community Development and Public Works, and Parks and Recreation, are inviting businesses and volunteer organizations to join with them in a partnership to restore approximately 300 lineal feet of streambank at the mouth of Horse Creek, near The Park at Bothell Landing in downtown Bothell.
The project is funded, in part, by a King County Water Works grant. A community planting event is planned for the fall of 1999. Organizations are needed to volunteer to assist in the following tasks:
"We hope that this restoration project will attract businesses, church groups, scout troops, and school environmental clubs," program coordinator Jerallyn Roetemeyer said.
- Design mailers/posters to publicize a community planting event.
- Design and/or install interpretive signage.
- Remove invasive vegetation.
- Assist with a community planting event (parking, set up, sign-in information booth, planting supervision).
- Organize a willow cutting event.
- Flag/identify plants and planting locations.
- Install split-rail fencing.
- Build a trail.
- Donate plants or materials (root wads, rock, mulch).
- Donate refreshments or volunteer give-aways for community planting event.
- Provide after-care program (watering, monitoring, weeding).
