Squad planted and planted from mucky stream side to scenic pond side. White Center Heights Park delighted us once again. Despite the drizzle, the covered tables were hospitable for lunch and the tree cover kept us comfortable. The creek was flowing even more than last time and truly delighted everyone. Every kiddo should have a creek to both play in and take care of. The pond work site greeted us with subtle frog croaks, though we never found it.
King County Parks led our work party again and we even enjoyed a scavenger hunt during the second half. We planted 65 plants in an area previously blanketed in ivy- a big improvement for forest health!
Extra note on rain gear: For the first time I have seen (more) affordable PVC-free European rain bibs sets!... Abeko is on Amazon up to 9yo sizes. You can also buy PVC-free Grundens Zenith (larger sizes available) locally at Bootyland, Wallingford or on Amazon for twice as much. It is a tough call between supporting small shops, affordability and also supporting healthier materials. Now there are more choices, hopefully we can look forward to a greater PVC-free future as more folks join in.
