The city of Sammamish is seeking volunteers for a work party Saturday, Nov. 19, at , SE 4th Street and 222nd Place SE
Please note that this is an afternoon volunteer event.
This park is located below City Hall, best access is from SE 4th and 222nd Place SE. The Lower Commons Park includes a native plant garden.

Volunteers will be working with stewards and staff to continue removal of invasive plants and add native plants that will enhance this area. The plants will have been salvaged early that morning. They will also help to spread bark to help keep the plants from returning.
This project is perfect for students looking to complete community service hours for school, great for groups of all ages. Bring your friends and family.
