Experiencing the leafy side of Beacon Hill, just minutes from Downtown, nourishes our hopes for a verdant urban forest. Not only is the Cheasty Greenspace beautiful, it is a testament to the power of neighbors coming together in stewardship. These everyday concerned-citizens rolled up their sleeves and reclaimed a degraded woods blighted by trash and noxious species. They began small and now are supported by the City, the Green Seattle Partnership and grant-contributors such as REI. The new staircase, resplendent with volunteer-decorated tiles is a wonderful access improvement.
We all benefit from stewardship labors and Squad is proud to be a continuing supporter. Much work has been done, but continued progress is underway and in fact always needed, as the pressures from human-impact requires continued remediation.
Thanks to my husband for co-leading this event in my stead and to my daughters for taking photos!
