COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
  • Easy

Please park at Grace Lutheran Church in Des Moines (22975 24th Ave S, Des Moines, WA 98198) and follow signs for Green Des Moines Day. We will work from 9am to 12pm, so park at the church a few minutes early to give enough time to walk to the park.

This activity will be led by Ali Yeates Lakehart, a representative from Forterra. Elaine Kelly, the Mountaineers staff member is providing administrative support and will not be attending, but can answer general questions about the activity. If you have specific questions about the activity, please contact Ali Yeates Lakehart at 

Although this one activity will not award a stewardship badge because it is less than 6 hours, if you participate in two of these activities get in touch with Member Services and we can add the badge to your profile. 

This activity is part of Forterra's Green City Days. Check out what Forterra is doing at our local parks and greenspaces to make them more beautiful and native-plant-focused!
