Greenway hosts summer camps

This summer, volunteers ages 10 to 18 will head outdoors in the Mountains to Sound Greenway for free, week-long summer camps.

Young volunteers will spend a week doing ecological restoration, trail work, outdoor education and games.

Volunteer camps at historic Meadowbrook Farm and Rattlesnake Mountain are planned July 20 to 24 for teens age 16 to 18, and July 27 to 31 for teens age 13 to 16.

Meadowbrook Farm is a 460-acre working farm with trails, an interpretive center and a magnificent view of Mount Si. Volunteers will work at a restoration site along Gardiner Creek, which flows through the farm. This area was previously full of blackberries and other invasive plants, which reduce the amount of habitat available for wildlife.

Greenway volunteers have spent the past year removing weeds and planting native trees along the creek, which will help improve the habitat for osprey, peregrine falcons and other wildlife.

Rattlesnake Mountain is one of the most accessible and popular recreation areas in the Greenway. The Greenway worked to acquire the mountain top and build a new trail across Rattlesnake Mountain between Snoqualmie Point Park and Rattlesnake Lake.

To volunteer, e-mail to volunteer@mtsgreenway.org, call (206) 812-0122 or visit www.mtsgreenway.org/volunteer.
