Volunteers Battle Invasive Plants

at Lake Stickney

 

As many as 80 volunteers arrived at the future site of the Nature Park at Lake Stickney for the Lake Stickney Conservancy Volunteer Event on Saturday, May 5th.  Adorned with boots and gloves, park enthusiasts wrastled invasive species like the Himalayan blackberry, Reed Canary Grass and miscellaneous debris to reclaim this beautfiul property for the people of Snohomish County.  This event was sponsored by the Snohomish County Parks Department, Lake Stickney Conservancy, and REI.  Many thanks to those who turned out for the event!  Interested individuals should keep an eye out for future opportunities to participate in these beautification events!

Putting A Face On Homelessness

 

 

Northwest author Richard LeMieux will appear May 23rd, 7pm, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lynnwood to address humanizing the individuals and families affected by homelessness.  After chronicling his own journey through homelessness in "Breakfast at Sally's", LeMieux continues to speak as an advocate for those struggling through it.  Representatives from the YWCA Housing Services will present their findings from a one-day study of Snohomish County's homeless and Cacoon House, a county resource that provides services to homeless youth. Sponsored by Neighbors in Need, which serves individuals and families struggling to meet housing and basic needs in South Snohomish County, this event is free to the public.  Donations of clothing and non-perishable food are encouraged.
