Weeding and salmon viewing at Commodore Park this Saturday

Ballardites are invited to stop by Commodore Park (3330 W Commodore Way) on Saturday morning, as the Friends of the Cedar River Watershed work toward restoring the ship canal shoreline park through the Green Seattle Partnership.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., volunteers will be removing invasive weeds from the park just south of the Ballard Locks in preparation for the planting of native species in the fall.

Both during and after the event, volunteers can visit the Locks to see salmon passing through the fish ladder on their way to Lake Washington. Volunteer naturalists will be stationed on the south side of the Locks to educate visitors about life cycle and habitat needs of returning salmon.

Anyone planning on attending is strongly urged to sign up beforehand, to give organizers an idea of the amount of supplies needed. To sign up, click here or email

Further details and directions will be provided upon registration.

    I guess we don’t pull our own teeth these days, so it stands to
    reason that we wouldn’t prepare our own legal documents
    and try to present a case on our own. The advice is free and you
    pay nothing until your case is aced. Therefore, the layer grants you with
    high quality services.
