Green Lake Stewards Work Party Saturday, November 9, 2019

Join Us for a Green Lake Work Party Nov 9

Scouts of Troop 186 looking serious after some definitely serious pruning in the dense willow thicket on the south end of the lake.

It’s nearly planting time!  We will be pruning and weeding and preparing our sites for planting groundcovers such as fringecup, redwood sorrel and goatsbeard. If plants arrive early, we may even get some in the ground this week.

If you do not have a full 3 hours to give, drop by for as much time as you have. Look for and follow our Event sign to find the work site.

Date: November 9 2019
Time: 9 am to 12 noon
Meet: Beside the Aqua Theater at the east end of the Small Craft Center (5900 West Green Lake Way North)

Minutes for September 24, 2019 Meeting

Friends of Green Lake Meeting, Tuesday September 24, 2019, Hearthstone

Convened at 7:00 PM

Attendees:
Rob ZisetteJoe MarkmanEllen HewittDick EitelSayna ParsiKaren SchurrColleen HackettAlice PoggiBrian DeLucaFred RiversGina HarmonMichael Hassold

Following around the table introductions, Rob Z chaired the meeting.

CH commented on considerations for improving the steps access to the water at the West Beach Bathhouse area. Noted was the difficulty young small children have negotiating the current large steps.

EH commented on possible tree additions to the Northbound Aurora Avenue park greenbelt side. BL noted that any young trees planted would be many years to grow before becoming preventers of cars careening off the street in to the park. Reflective pain along that Eastside curb would assist drivers to be aware of its proximity. An out of control vehicle would need a substantial barrier installed to deflect it from the park.
