Give thanks and show gratitude at Sanislo Wetland Nov. 24; Volunteers needed for planting

The Puget Creek Watershed Alliance has the perfect way to show your gratitude and work off a few of those extra calories. They are holding a Thanksgiving Planting at the Sanislo Wetland Nov. 24 and need your help.

They are restoring the wetland headwaters of Puget Creek – a culturally significant watershed upstream of the Duwamish Tribe’s efforts to restore salmon habitat – and important to King County Wastewater’s efforts to improve water quality in the Duwamish River. It’s tree planting time – evergreen trees reduce sewer overflows by intercepting winter rains.

Date: Saturday Nov 24, 2012
Time: 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (Join for an hour or all day)
Where: Sanislo School Wetland; 1812 SW Myrtle, Seattle, WA 98106. Between South Seattle Community College and Home Depot on Delridge SW in West Seattle (Bus # 125, 120, or 128). Meet at front of school.
What to bring: We have gloves and tools (write your name on any personal tools). Wear long sleeves/pants, sturdy shoes or boots, & hat/rain protection. Snacks and water provided.
