The Green Line is a restoration project running under the Seattle City Light power lines from the Creston Nelson electrical substation in Southwest Seattle to the Duwamish Substation right on the Duwamish River in Tukwila. The project intends to restore native and sustainable habitats, improving the quality of habitat for wildlife and our community on land that has had very limited ecological value, with special emphasis on pollinators.
Multiple volunteer work parties are planned throughout the year. Bring yourself with all your enthusiasm for native plants and pollinators; gloves and a trowel might be handy but not necessary. Join us in planning while learning about wild bees, native plants, and designing and planting your own yard to support diverse ecology.. The workshops will be led by Alleycat Acres and the Common Acre.
We will be plotting out an acre of potential plantings, along S. Bangor Street and 55th Ave. S. Eventually this acre will be a habitat for pollinators and also allow for selected food-producing plants. We will explore different aspects of the land: water, sun, soil, and existing habitat, and mark out an area for a “ground-making” in June.
Park along 55th Ave. S. and meet under the big transmission line tower.
