Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers are needed to help with the creation of willow wattle fences. Volunteers can learn about the construction process and local ecology of Tahoma Creek. Volunteers would take part in helping the park re-open a portion of the Westside road. Because part of the design involves live trees, volunteers can watch soil stabilization happen over time.
 I am looking for 10 volunteers on each of the following days: August 26, 27, 29, 30, 31/ September 7,8,9.   to work with me on constructing willow wattle fences. This is a great opportunity to volunteer with a group of friends or to meet some new people!

The project would include the following tasks:
- Shoveling soil
- Using tools to cut down young willow and alder branches, to be used for live staking.
- Using rock bars to move rocks, for site preparation.
- Moving soil via wheelbarrow
- Hammering live stakes into the creek bed

A day would span from 8 am to 5 pm, but promises to be invigorating! Volunteers would need to bring their own lunch and their own water. 
If you are willing to participate or have questions please contact Jeni Chan at jennifer_chan@partner.nps.gov
Thank you!
