Green Team Celebrates Earth Day with Community Partners

The Mount Si High School Green Team partnered community groups on Saturday, April 20, to celebrate Earth Day. See photos below from the day’s events at the East Fork Kimball Creek restoration site (just beyond the school’s tennis courts on Meadowbrook Way SE).

 

Leaders from the Snoqualmie Tribe began the event by sharing the historical significance of the area, while Mount Si teacher Andrew Rapin talked about the work that students have been engaged in over the past few years, to help restore the area. Additional activities included service work to remove invasive plants, as well as hands-on demonstrations about worm farms, building a wild bee hotel, nature based crafts, mushroom inoculation, watershed wildlife, and water testing. Special thanks to the Snoqualmie Tribe, Oxbow Farms, Northwest Society for Ecological Restoration, and Crown Bees for hosting the event.
