It seemed rather appropriate that we spent today, May Day, outside all day. Our activity for the day was working with Nature Consortium helping to keep the many parks in West Seattle alive and well. Through their Urban Forest Restoration Program, we worked with Nature Consortium at Firefly park removing invasive species of blackberries along the trail. By removing the blackberry bushes, it allows the native species of plants and trees to grow and provide a stable environment for the forest to grow and flourish. It was a great day of hard work in the sunshine! (There are more pictures from our work day, but we are having a technical difficulty getting to post…will post more later)
After our work was done, we headed down to Alki Beach in West Seattle to have our annual bonfire on the beach. We had a few folks join us for a hot dog roast, relaxing and watching the sunset over the mountains. It was such a peaceful and relaxing evening out in nature.
