What better way to start spring then by transforming a grassy field in Marymoor into a healthy forest.
Years from now, when your kids see tall trees by the walking trail in Marymoor, wouldn’t they feel great knowing they did their part for the environment and planted those magnificent trees!
MAPS-NOW has adopted a section of Marymoor Park. We meet 4 times a year to preserve that natural area and make it more suitable for local wildlife. Last event was a great success. People found planting trees and shrubs very rewarding so we are starting this year with another planting event. We will continue working in the same area to plant more trees and shrubs.
This is a great opportunity to come with your whole family (all ages are welcome) and enjoy the beautiful nature that Allah (swt) has blessed us. At the same time, contribute back to nature and our community, fulfilling one of MAPS goals of model citizen. Rain or shine, we will inshaAllah plant lots of trees that will give back to nature for many years to come.
Enter through Marymoor Park East Entrance (the one near MAPS). Free parking tickets will be provided for volunteers.
Coming from east Redmond off 202, turn south onto East Lake Sammamish Parkway NE. Take right at next light onto NE 65th Street. Continue on this road, it takes you directly into Marymoor Park’s East entrance. Park in the East Marymoor Lot on your right (one used for MAPS during Friday) and walk south down the road to the grassy area in front of the Regional Maintenance Shop.
