The fifth annual Earth Gay Seattle was spectacular with over 200 volunteers coming together to build a pocket park and restore a significant portion of the Cheshiahud Loop trail around Lake Union. We had great leadership from Sellen Construction and the Seattle Department of Transportation, snacks donated by Starbucks and Whole Foods Market, live music by the Rainbow City Band, visitors in the form of Senator Ed Murray and Q13 Fox News, and involvement from a great swath of our community such as the GSBA and Boeing Company. Over two, two-hour shifts our volunteers built steps at a street end site for water access, along with a viewing platform. We cleared a huge stretch of shoreline from invasives and then mulched the area and planted a dozen trees and a hundred native plants to create a more healthy ecosystem for local critters like Blue Heron, and to create a more attractive space that will hopefully reduce the drug activity that has dominated that stretch of the lake. Across the trail we cleared 2 containers worth of invasives from a quarter mile stretch of trees to create viable tree rings that protect them from the ivy and other invasives that can damage them to the point of falling over in large storms. Thank you to all who came out and gave it your all!
