Fruitful start to next week in Seattle

April 27, 2013 by  

‘Bustin Blueberries on the Burke-Gilman Trail’ gives families in this area the chance to come out and do something good for their community once the weekend has gone by.

Poster printing and banner printing by local print companies may have been the choice of organizers to promote this interesting and unique cleanup event to the people in this area. The event is open to all ages and everyone is welcome to volunteer their time.

This cleanup is being hosted by the Friends of the Burke-Gilman of Sand Point and will involve the removal of invasive plants that grow beside the trail, as well as the collection of any litter that has accumulated during the winter months. Organizers suggest that volunteers dress for the weather outside on this day, and bring a coffee mug for the morning break, as well as a water bottle. Gloves and tools will be provided for the people who volunteer.

Volunteers are requested to meet across the road from the trail, and parking is available on 58th Avenue NE. Helpers under 18 must have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian.

A volunteer function, it offers a great chance to socialize with other community-minded locals. It will be happening on Monday, April 29, from 8:30am to 12:30pm on the Burke-Gilman Trail located at 6501 58th Avenue NE in Seattle, Washington. To volunteer, or to learn more about what is happening on the day, please visit the Cedar Green City Partnerships website.
