Thank you to the finance team from Boeing for volunteering at the KCD Native Plant Nursery. Boeing staff walked over from their Renton offices to the Nursery to help weed over 1000 potted plants on a sunny June afternoon. Trees and shrubs from the Nursery will be used on habitat restoration projects across King County this fall. Volunteers play an important role at the Nursery in helping ensure that only the healthiest plants make it onto KCD projects.
Volunteers can also earn native plants to use on their projects or in landscaping by volunteering at the Nursery. We rely on the support of volunteers to keep the plants and nursery ground maintained. If you would like to bring a group out to the nursery or another KCD restoration project, contact KCD Volunteer Coordinator, Nikki Wolf at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also sign up to volunteer at an upcoming event.
Matt has been with KCD since 2016. Originally brought on to coordinate grant submissions, Matt also supported and coordinated volunteer, education, and outreach events through the Engagement team. He has since moved over to the Food and Farm Team to make full use of his talents as a Resource Planner.
