Know your Native Plants!
Host: Franklin High School  

Seward Park is home to the only stand of old-growth forest left in Seattle. Many of its trees are more than 200 years old! But the trees are not the only plants that thrive in the park. This region is home to hundreds of native plants many of which call Seward Park home. But they are under attack! Invasive plants have begun to take over parts of the forest. We need your help to remove them in order for native trees and plants to grow and thrive. Join the June cohort to learn about healthy forests and make a difference in the forests of Seward Park!
