The much-anticipated Madrona Beach Restoration work party will be this Saturday, Aug. 14 from 9-12.
As readers will recall, a local group of volunteers received $17,500 from the Martin & Mimi Kraus Gift to restore the original community recreation area at Madrona Beach.
The restoration committee recommends volunteers bring gloves, brooms, shovels, weeding supplies and dust pans to help, though basic tools, drinks and treats will be provided. The focus this Saturday will be on weeding and cleaning out the stream bed as well as general clean up.
This weekend is the first of several work parties and more casual clean up events, with the heavy lifting – putting in new plants, adding the bouncy log, concrete log and boulders – scheduled for fall when the beach is less busy.
You can simply show up if you’re interested in helping, or contact Paige Smith at 206-225-5821 for more information.
