Help out at Ballard’s parks this weekend

If you’re looking to get some exercise and fresh air this weekend, there are two work parties on Saturday, August 19 at local parks that could use volunteers.

At Carkeek Park, there will be a S.T.A.R.S. work party from 9 am to noon. They’ll be working on forest restoration and trail maintenance, and have a variety of tasks they need help with. Gloves and water will be provided, and teens are welcome to go help out. Contact Dale Johnson at 206-362-2980 with any additional questions.

Also on Saturday from 9am to noon is a Ballard Corners Park work party (17th Ave NW & NW 63rd Street). They’ll have a few tools and refreshments, but ask volunteers to bring gloves and extra tools if possible. Contact Gabriella with any questions at or 206-782-3238
