Gayle Garman, President of the Friends of Green Lake, shares the following information about the work party:

You’ve seen our shoreline restoration sites….the native plants we installed are flourishing, BUT the weeds are stupendous! This Sat., May 5, from 9:00 to noon, we will spread mulch over weed barriers at the southeast site, the one about 100 yds north of the pitch and putt golf course. We had over 80% survival of our plantings, now we need to keep the weeds from overwhelming our native plants. So come help us spread the mulch! Dress for the weather (layers seem to work best, you get warm hauling mulch), and your feet will get muddy! If you have garden gloves, and a favorite weeding tool, please bring them also….we need to remove a few weeds and blackberry roots by hand. If you need to borrow gloves and tools, or have questions, please let us know at: FriendsofGL [at] On Sat, at 9:00, look for the Friends of Green Lake tent and the pile of mulch (already on the site). See you there!

11 a.m. – 2 a.m. Cinco de Mayo block party at the Green Lake Tacos Guaymas. [info]
