Paradise Valley bird habitat work parties

As part of our commitment to enhancing wild bird habitats, Vashon Audubon is helping the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust care for a portion of the Judd Creek Preserve in Paradise Valley. Beginning in March, we are transitioning from our fall-winter routine of weekly work parties to bi-weekly efforts, and will modify our work-area focus to minimize disturbing breeding birds. Upcoming work parties will be on every-other Thursdays. We’ll be working from 10 AM to 12:30 PM.

To join in, meet at the Judd Creek Loop Trail trailhead on the EAST side of 111th Ave SW in Paradise Valley .(Note: this is NOT the parking lot on the west side of 111th close to 204th SW.) Dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes. Please bring your own work gloves and hand tools. Expect encounters with blackberries and nettles. Bring water, snacks, and your sense of humor and purpose!

Tasks will vary but often include removing invasive plants like blackberries, holly, and English ivy.
