OUT for Sustainability hosts the sixth annual Earth Gay Seattle on April 19th, 2014! We’re partnering with Beacon Bike Park to restore Cheasty Greenspace, an the urban forest located on Beacon Hill, in preparation for the implementation of bike trails. During Earth Gay volunteers will be removing of invasive species like blackberry and english ivy, weeding, mulching, protecting tree systems from invasive species, and planting native species.

Earth Gay will be in the Beacon Hill Neighborhood at Cheasty Greenspace with two shifts between at 9:30am to 2:30pm.

4334 Cheasty Blvd S, Seattle, WA 98108
DIRECTIONS
If you turn east on Cheasty Blvd. S. from Beacon Ave, you’ll see a field couple hundred yards down on the right we’ll have our registration tent there.
BRING:
Prepare for all weather – sunscreen and rain jackets.   You’ll need closed-toe shoes and clothing that’s tough enough to handle the occasional blackberry. 
Feel free to bring friends. 
 
We’ll provide gloves, tools, snacks and a team captain to help you out.  
 
You’ll volunteer in forest restoration which may mean picking up some garbage, taking out invasive ivy, and building compost heaps.  Shifts are just under two hours.
Looking forward to seeing you April 19th between 10am and 2pm. \

The mayor will be dropping in at 12:30!
