Memorial Day Restoration at Cavanaugh Pond and Thank You Party in Renton
We have made it one of our favorite times of the year. Volunteers are now able to soak in some rays and catch views of sun on the river as they spend a few hours pulling out invasive plants to prepare for fall planting. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? Seriously, there is little more satisfying than turning a giant blackberry bush into open ground for planting. Plus, it is a great workout. What if we threw in a party to celebrate our efforts after the labor? Even better?
Join FCRW at King County’s Cavanaugh Pond Natural Area on Memorial Day weekend to reclaim Cavanaugh from invasive plants and create habitat for fish and wildlife. Over the last six years 12 acres have been restored, but we are not done yet! After the event we will raise a toast to the volunteers, businesses, and community partners that make our work possible. This event will be featured in Field and Stream magazine as part of their Hero For A Day series. Come on out and be a hero this Memorial Day weekend!
