Over 30 volunteers transplant native shrubs to Marymoor BirdLoop

Over 30 volunteers from Audubon and King County Youth turned out this Saturday to transplant native shrubs salvaged from Group Health, to the Marymoor BirdLoop.  Redmond Councilmember Hank Myers volunteered.  670 plants were installed on a fenced bird-viewing hill that overlooks wetlands and marsh adjacent Parking Lot G.  Wildlife habitat will be greatly improved once the shrubs take hold.  The hill looks terrific!  You must come by and see for yourself!  Take a look at the educational kiosk while you're at it.   Every Thursday morning guided bird-watching tours stop by this hill to view birds.  Anna's Hummingbirds and Cackleing Geese entertained the work party.  (Visit the sidebar of this blog for more information on bird-watching). Photos by Audubon Photographer Mick Thompson.
