From bare to beautiful

Recently a small plot of roadside land in a Bear Creek neighborhood went from bare to beautiful as a result of a pilot program that pairs volunteer groups with King County.
   The Bear Creek Neighborhood Alliance and the County joined in a massive planting effort at a section of the right-of-way located at Northeast 185th Street and 194th Avenue Northeast.
   The Adopt-a-Road Landscape Enhancement Program encourages community groups to use their skills to improve and maintain specific landscaped patches of right-of-way.
   To find out how your groups can participate, call Sev Sarkissian at (206) 296-3807.
