Soos Creek Park restoration event is Saturday

The Sierra Club South King County Group, Friends of Soos Creek Park, and Rainier Audubon – in coordination with King County Parks – hosts a large habitat restoration event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m Saturday.

Efforts are designed to enhance an area adjacent to Soos Creek and around two ponds by planting 750 upland native trees and shrubs where blackberries recently have been cleared.

Tools, drinks, and snacks will be provided. Please bring your own work gloves and dress for the weather.

The work area is at Gary Grant Park along the Soos Creek Trail on the north side of Southeast 208th Street, at 137th Avenue Southeast, west of Lake Youngs.
