Myers Way Wetland Restoration Project, 2020 - 2023
Phase 1, in 2020, Weed Warriors removed invasive blackberries from 33,000 square feet wetland. The pile of blackberry canes and roots was approximately 5,000 cubic feet.
Phase 2, in 2021 - 2022, we removed more blackberry roots, followed by a planting of 350 native wetland trees and shrubs.
Phase 3, in 2023, we are continuing weed removal and control activities! Read more about the project HERE.
Phase 4, in 2024, we will continue the restoration effort!
Myers Way Wetland Restoration Project, 2023
Now that the blackberries are removed the native horsetail, a desired wetland plant, is returning. Justin, our project intern from the University of WA, plants Western Red Cedar trees.
Vijay and Kierre are standing in the native horsetail.
We Solarized the New Start Community Garden Infrastructure in 2022!
The garden stage, irrigation system, and greenhouse has solar power, making the garden an Eco-friendly, off-the-grid garden of the future.
