Thanks for a Successful 2015!!

We'd like to acknowledge and thank all the volunteers who worked on restoring this habitat during 2015.  There were over 230 work parties held during the year during which volunteers spent more than 8800 hours working on weeding, mulching, planting and maintaining the area along nearly 4 miles of the Burke-Gilman Trail.  This effort included adding 8912 native plants to this area.

FOBG@SP would also like to thank the King Conservation District Seattle Community Partnership for providing a grant supporting our work on the Burke-Gilman Trail for the last year and a half (2014 -15). The grant provided money to do organizational building, out reach and native plants and work party support. We would not have been able to do this without this great help!

Thanks to all!
