Volunteers Needed for Green Footprints

(from the Arboretum Heights community, between 23rd and the Arboretum)

Hi, we are in the final stages of preparing the Green Footprints proposal to the Dept. of Neighborhoods (DON). The DON wants to see broad community support and signing up as a volunteer is the best way. Please consider pledging some time and helping us strengthen our community. thanks, John

Volunteers Needed for Green Footprints

Our goal is to create an ecology resource map and master plan for the hillside neighborhood above the Arboretum. We hope it will be a positive community experience as well

We are looking for volunteers that want to work with experts from Seattle Urban Nature and the Audubon Society to build a resource map of the neighborhood. Training will focus on the trees, shrubs, birds and habitat in our neighborhood as well as mapping techniques, GPS systems and more. After the training, volunteers collect data in their neighborhoods. The result will be a resource map that captures all the natural resources (and there are plenty) in an urban neighborhood. Kids 12 and over are welcome and it could be a great family experience!

Please sign up as:
Mapping Volunteer
6 or 12 hours (Fall 2007 or Spring 2008) to include 2 hour training sessions and 4 hour data gathering sessions - this will guarantee you a free tee shirt!

Volunteer Staff:
40 hour suggested (from Fall 2007 to Fall 2008) to participate in survey preparation, data collection, community meetings, and preparation of the Master Plan. This will get you a CD of the final master plan!

Please reply to email at johnrpotter@qwest.net or give me a call at 320 0947. If you have any professional skills that could be of value (education or training in ecology, data bases, computer skills), we would love to tell you more about the project.

Even if you can't volunteer and want to stay in touch with the project just let me know. Thanks,
John
