Seminary Dedication

New informational signs tell visitors about the geologic, logging and conservation history at the Seminary Hill Natural Area.

The Friends of the Seminary Hill Natural Area will host their second-annual Autumn Work Party this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, rain or shine. All are invited to attend. Free coffee, cookies and sandwiches will be available for workers.

Ross Olson, who is leading this event for the Friends group, said the volunteer workers will repair trails, install some trail signs, remove ivy, and do other general cleanup at the 70-acre city-owned forest. 

“My feeling always is, it’s such a great community resource that people shouldn’t feel shy about supporting it, not only by using the facility, but once in a while coming out and lending a hand,” Olson said.

Attendees are urged to wear wet-weather gear if available, along with sturdy footwear. The Friends group will have some tools and gloves available, but volunteers are invited to bring their own tools as well, particularly loppers, shovels, rakes and wheelbarrows. 

To learn more about the work involved at Saturday’s event, contact Olson at 360-623-2334.

This is the final event of the year hosted by the Friends group. The Friends’ annual meeting has tentatively been set for Jan. 25, 2020.
