Martin Luther King Day of Service - Silver Creek Work Party

Monday, January 20, 2020

Silver Creek Habitat Stewards and PCD will be celebrating their first work party of 2020 by installing new trees and shrubs.

Do you ever think about how you are connected to your local park and the critters in it? With Martin Luther King Jr Day coming up we've been thinking about what he said about our interconnectedness.

"It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny." -M.L.K. Jr

In that spirit, let's strengthen that "network of mutuality" this MLK day and improve this local nature oasis so that it can be a get away from urban sprawl for the people and the critters we love! 

Activities include:

  • Tree and shrub planting
  • Adding a layer of wood chips to help sustain the plants through the winter and into the summer
  • Removal of harmful plants


Training: 

  • We'll provide all the training you'll need!

To bring:
  • Water!
  • Warm clothes that can get dirty
  • Your friends and family :-)


Be sure to dress warmly and wear clothes you can get dirty in!

About Silver Creek:
The Silver Creek site has been in active restoration since 2003.  Since then, many volunteers have been caring for the Puyallup open space by maintaining trees and shrubs, and planting new ones.  The Silver Creek Habitat Stewards host quarterly work parties.
