Wadeware will be joining EarthCorps and Green Kirkland to remove invasive plant species (Himalayan Blackberries) at Carillon Woods Park and improve the health of the city’s ecosystem as part of United Way’s Day of Caring. The Himalayan Blackberry is an invasive plant species that has invaded our urban forests and is doing damage to the cycle of forest succession in the Northwest.
On September 16, Wadeware employees will be participating in United Way’s Day of Caring for the biggest single day of volunteering in the state of Washington. In addition to removing the Himalayan Blackberries (all while dodging the thorns, of course), volunteers will lead a talk explaining the Green Kirkland Partnership, EarthCorps, safety, environmental restoration techniques and tool use.
The Green Kirkland Partnership was formed by the Cascade Land Conservancy, the City of Kirkland and its citizens to promote community stewardship of Kirkland’s natural areas. For more information, visit www.greenkirkland.org.
Wadeware has a long history of helping out in the local community, including partnerships with Hope-Link and Habitat for Humanity. Wadeware is dedicated to making a lasting impact on our community while having fun at the same time.
