Discovery Park Sunny Winter Work Round-Up.

Hummingbirds noisily danced & dipped, kids planted, adults shoveled and the coats came off- yet another unseasonably warm and sunny Squad for the 2015 winter-that-wasn't.  A variety of jobs were tackled at our second event at the Discovery Park restoration site stewarded by Matt Chadsey, supported by both the park and the Green Seattle Partnership.  One crew tackled the thorn battle(!) digging out blackberry from native Nutka roses, while others flagged older natives, planted new ones and mulched them.  All amongst horsing-around of course.  We will come back in the summer to go swimming afterwards!
