Volunteer for Earth Day April 26th!

An abundance of wildlife lives in or visits 110 acres of preserved wetlands and marshes at Juanita Bay Park. The animal population within this habitat includes songbirds, waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, amphibians, turtles, beavers, and other small mammals. The park offers extraordinary views of Forbes Creek Wetland, Juanita Beach, and Juanita Bay. The park features paved trails, boardwalks, open lawn areas, restroom, benches, and picnic tables. Invasive plant species are a problem at the park and volunteers are needed to help restore the natural habitat. The Green Kirkland Partnership will be targeting restoration efforts in the area west of 98th Avenue NE (Market Street) and near the boardwalks.

Today’s Earth Day project is part of a larger collaboration known as the Green Kirkland Partnership (GKP). The Green Kirkland Partnership is an alliance between the City of Kirkland, nonprofit partners, businesses, and the community to restore natural areas in the City. For more information, please visit www.greenkirkland.org.
