Redmond Earth Day Celebration:
9am to Noon | April 11, 2009
The Sammamish River Trail near Leary Way Bridge. Redmond celebrates Earth Day early to avoid a crowded calendar of events throughout the region later in the month. Come celebrate with us by planting native trees and shrubs near the Sammamish River.
• We provide tools, training, gloves, bathrooms, water, light refreshments and lots of gratitude.
• We work rain or shine, so dress for the weather and dress to get dirty.
• All participants are required to sign a volunteer agreement before working.
• Those under 18 must have the signature of their parent or guardian.
• Those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Waivers are available on the City of Redmond website.
Parking is available at Redmond Town Center. The restoration site is about a one-quarter mile walk from the Redmond Town Center Parking Garage. From the lot, cross 164th Avenue NE and continue on NE 74th Street until you reach Bear Creek Parkway. Cross Bear Creek Parkway and continue on the path beneath the large grove of Douglas Fir trees veering left toward the Leary Way Bridge. There will be signs to help guide your way. Cross the Leary Way Bridge to the West side of the river, to the Sammamish River Trail. We will be planting just upstream from the bridge.
