  • Snoqualmie Stewardship Earth Month Event: Rain Garden Maintenance Work Party - Carnation

    Date: April 11, 2020
    Time: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
    Location: Carnation Elementary School, 4950 Tolt Ave, Carnation, WA 98014, USA
    Join Stewardship Partners, Carnation Elementary School, the Snoqualmie Tribe, and Aspect Consulting as we celebrate Earth Day’s 50 year anniversary with a maintenance work party at the Carnation Elementary School rain gardens. In 2015, Stewardship Partners received a grant from the King County Flood Control District to work with the 3rd grade class to design and install two rain gardens on the campus. They were installed in 2018 and are doing great, they just need a little upkeep and weeding! Rain gardens are a beautiful landscape amenity that help address our region’s single largest water quality threat: run off pollution. Like a sponge, a rain gardens allow stormwater runoff to be soaked up, and filter out pollutants while recharging ground water instead of flooding the Snoqualmie River. </p>

    Refreshments (coffee, water & snacks), tools, gloves, and an overview of the work, why it’s important and how to do it are provided. We’ll educate volunteers about the project and our efforts in the Snoqualmie Valley. Bring a full water bottle and a coffee cup or travel mug for refreshments. </p>

  • Snoqualmie Stewardship Earth Month Event - Habitat Restoration - Carnation

    Date: April 18, 2020
    Time: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
    Location: Changing Seasons Farm, 722 W Snoqualmie River Rd NE, Carnation, WA 98104, USA
    hanging Seasons Farm is a small family farm growing a wide variety of vegetables using ecologically sustainable methods. Their produce is Certified Naturally Grown, and the farm is Salmon-Safe certified. The farm provides produce to people in the Seattle – Eastside area through on-farm purchase. They also offer Consumer Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes that are available for pick up at the farm and in Issaquah, Washington. </p>

    Today volunteers will join in our month long celebration of Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary by helping us restore and maintain riparian habitat at Changing Seasons Farm along the Snoqualmie in the scenic Snoqualmie Valley. We’ll perform restoration site maintenance on past planting areas by clearing the area of invasive plants. We may also plant native trees and shrubs today. The project site may be located on relatively rough terrain and there is a fair amount of walking involved.  </p>
