Lincoln Park Volunteer Event
Join EarthCorps in working at Panther Lake Open Space, a 78.72 acre greenspace which serves as wonderful habitat with a year-round body of water and forested walking trails. Wetland areas such as Panther Lake provide essential wildlife habitat and attractive places for people to relax, stroll and learn about rich natural ecosystems. Volunteers should expect to remove invasive plants and perform restoration site maintenance in an effort to restore this urban forest. Directions: take Exit 142-B in Federal Way; head West on S. 348th Street and cross over Enchanted Parkway and Pacific Highway; after passing the park ‘n’ ride on the south side of the road, the road curves north and becomes SW Campus Drive; look for the orange signs.
