Help Mountains to Sound Greenway restore Luther Burbank | Community news

Mountains to Sound Greenway volunteers will join Mercer Island Parks for an ecological restoration event at Luther Burbank Park from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17.

A morning team begin at 9 a.m. and an afternoon team will start at noon.

Luther Burbank Park is an important rest stop for many species of migratory birds and is home to at least one family of beavers.

During the volunteer event, we will be removing various invasive species such as blackberry, ivy, holly, and more to ensure the survival of the native vegetation. Organizers say it will make a big difference to this important wetland area.
