Event description from Mercer Island Parks & Recreation:

Join us at Ellis Pond Park for our restoration volunteer event. Removing certain plants will help build more wildlife habitat in a small neighborhood park teeming with birds and other woodland creatures. We will remove weeds like English ivy, Himalayan blackberry, and English holly to help protect native plants and forest health. Gather with friends and neighbors for this fun Sunday event. No experience necessary; participation limited to 10 people, so please register here beforehand.

Snacks, gloves, and tools will be provided. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty (think: long pants, boots or sneakers), and bring a water bottle.
