Earth Day at Juanita Heights Park

Under a sunny morning Earth Day sky, 37 volunteers cleared blackberries out of a 4,000 foot area in Juanita Heights park. We cut back the canes, piled them on rafts made from woody debris, then shoveled and picked our way beneath the root crowns. There it was, the earth, rising up beneath a drift of impenetrable blackberries.  Thanks to every volunteer who came out this morning to give back to the earth!

Landslide in Big Finn Hill Park

Posted by on Dec 17, 2016 in Blog, Parks, Trails | Comments Off on Landslide in Big Finn Hill Park

Landslide in Big Finn Hill Park

Over Thanksgiving weekend, a landslide occurred in Big Finn Hill Park on the trail to O.O.

It flung trees every which way as the mud and debris cascaded down the hillside. Downstream the slide scoured the creek edges, flattened the creek bed, ripped the railing off the second pedestrian bridge, and destroyed the first...
