This event was the first Stewardship Squad to be called off early by thunder and lightening! The weather was quite something. We began in clouds, had a gorgeous sun break and then worked through intermittent torrential downpours, finishing off with the thunder and lightening.
Squad has worked many times at Luther Burbank Park with the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, but this was our first down in the south end. Indeed, the original plan was to work in our usual northern restoration area but the land manager decided the ground was too saturated- tromping around on soaked soil can badly spoil its natural texture of clumps and open pores, rendering it more like sludge than friable soil for roots to explore.
Several volunteers enjoyed receiving their five-work-party MTSGT shirts. We look forward to returning this summer for our usual summer stewardship and swim events!
