Help Heron Habitat Helpers get native plants in the ground as we continue restoring habitat in Kiwanis Ravine Wildlife Refuge! We have many established native shrubs and trees, and now we’re adding understory plants as ecological succession of the plant community proceeds. We’ll likely do some weeding of invasive species to start, then plant bunchberry, wild ginger, Oregon grape and ferns.

Kiwanis Ravine is home to numerous bird species, amphibians, mountain beavers, and other wildlife, and it’s an important green buffer for the great blue heron nesting colony at the Ballard Locks. We’ll tour the colony before we begin; it’s near our meeting point.

No experience necessary. We provide all the tools needed, and a light snack.

Perfect opportunity to give back to the environment, family or office group volunteering, or get your student service hours.
