As our days get longer and warmer, think about volunteering in our neighborhood park, Carkeek!  

Weekday Workers (WeWos) are forest stewards that focus on special planting and plant care projects with the help of volunteers who are available during the week. The work varies as needs arise in Carkeek Park. Typical activities are planting, invasive species removal and clearing blocked trails. Location of work within the park and type of work varies from week to week.

For details about location and work plans please contact:
Loren McElvain at 206.782.7617 or Forest@CarkeekPark.org

Carkeek Park Demonstration Gardens meet most Tuesdays, 9 am to Noon. The volunteer gardeners will be in the garden to answer questions about the gardens and successful, low-impact gardening. If you would like to volunteer in the gardens, please contact one of the gardeners listed below before showing up to volunteer. Volunteers should wear gardening clothes; we have spades, shovels, and rakes, but bring your favorite small tool
