Looking for a way to make a difference in your community on Earth Day? The City of Edmonds invites you to join your friends and neighbors to help remove invasive ivy and blackberry in Yost Park, one of Edmonds’ most diverse and popular forested parks.
Removing these weeds is the first step towards restoring the park’s native ecosystem by clearing space for native plantings.
Bring work gloves and dress for the weather, as this event will happen rain or shine from 9 a.m. to noon. Some tools and refreshments will be provided, but you are asked to also bring cutting and digging tools if you have them. All ages are welcome. No registration is required.
Yost Park is located at 9535 Bowdoin Way in Edmonds. Some parking is available in the parking lot, with overflow parking available in the neighborhood surrounding the south side of the park. Participants must sign in upon arrival, where they will be directed to a work area.
The Yost Park Earth Day event is sponsored by the City of Edmonds Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services, the Edmonds Citizens’ Tree Board, and EarthCorps Puget Sound Stewards. For more information, call 425-771-0227.
