Releaf the Sammamish River on Nov. 3

Join other volunteers in planting native trees along the Sammamish River to provide shade and improve habitat for fish and wildlife and control invasive weeds on Saturday, Nov. 3.
   Meet at 10 a.m. at 60 Acres Park, located at NE 116th St. along the river north of Redmond to help plant and mulch 1,000 trees. Wear old clothes and work boots. Bring work gloves and a shovel (marked so you can tell it from others) and dress for the weather. Planters will work rain or shine.
   Participants under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and participants under 18 must bring a signed liability agreement.
   To sign up or to learn more, call Polly Freeman, King County Water and Land, at (206) 296-8359 or e-mail to polly.freeman@metrokc.gov.
