Wolf Creek Ravine restoration project kicks off Thursday with public meeting to rally volunteers
Posted on September 3rd, 2014 by Sara Willy
Last week we posted about the upcoming Wolf Creek Ravine restoration project, and the volunteer opportunity is here! We first noticed changes when the Queen Anne P-Patch beehive disappeared (temporarily moved for the restoration work). Since then, signs have been posted to alert P-Patchers and residents about the upcoming work.
Wolf Creek Ravine is the natural greenspace that borders the P-Patch to the north, running under the McGraw Street and Queen Anne Drive bridges. The area near the P-Patch is full of blackberries and invasive knotweed, and the Green Seattle Partnership project will work on removing these plants and replacing them with native plantings.
Volunteers are needed to help with the project. To learn more about how you can help, attend a meeting tomorrow (Thursday), September 4th at 5:30pm to discuss plans and provide feedback. The meeting will be held at the P-Patch at 3rd Ave N and Boston St. Volunteers are welcome (and needed) to help with the restoration.
Work on Wolf Creek will begin soon with knotweed control completed by early Fall. The project length will be dependent on volunteers. Maps and more details can be found in last week’s post.
