Volunteers needed for Normandy Park Work Party this Sunday, April 30


Volunteers are needed to get outside and join neighbors to beautify Walker Creek and the Normandy Park Swim Club this coming Sunday, April 30.

Join your Miller-Walker Basin Steward and members of the Normandy Park/Miller-Walker community for the Normandy Park Swim Club’s annual work party to beautify the pool area and nearby creek to prepare for the summer swim season.

Kids love playing around the stream, but it is being overgrown with invasive plants.

Come help clear invasive weeds to preserve the creek, native forest, and the fish and wildlife that call this place home.

No experience is necessary, all are welcome (children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult). Please sign up!
