It must be summer, Squad has returned to Luther Burbank Park with the Mountains to Sound Greenway! We tended our usual restoration site near Lake Washington under the shade of the big Oregon ash tree / Fraxinus latifolia.
The site is looking terrific after years of attention. We continued maintenance-weeding of noxious species and over-vigorous natives such as horsetail that threaten the survival of young plants trying to establish, such as red osier dogwood, snowberry and roses.
A summer Squad event couldn't be complete without a run around the old concrete foundations of the former dairy barn as well as an extremely refreshing swim off the end of Calkins Point. We'll be back- come on out to enjoy this quiet spot on Lake Washington in the heart of the Seattle-Bellevue metropolis.
