Tolt MacDonald Park is getting hundreds of baby trees! King County Parks has cleared significant acreage of noxious blackberries that is now ready for planting. We helped out by putting in young Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars. It was quite the impressive crew coming out in the pouring winter rain! Watching this new forest grow up will be very special for all of us to witness over the years.
It was our first occasion to work on this beautiful public land in Carnation. It has a wonderful bridge over the river, which is also fun to play along. The park has camping and also yurts that can be rented.
The next step for this site is mulching the restoration area to retain water during our dry summers, as well as to repel weeds-particularly all those blackberry seeds that will be threatening to sprout if given the chance. We look forward to returning to help out!
