Fit & Fun
Yard work burns calories, and the West Duwamish Greenbelt is one big yard — at almost 500 acres.
It’s home to frogs, hawks, bald eagles and other animals, and provides a touch of wilderness within the city.
Nature Consortium is holding a work party from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, July 26, and promises volunteers some “ fun, hands-on conservation work,” which will mainly involve removing invasive weeds, such as Himalayan blackberry and English ivy, from the greenbelt.

Registration is required at naturec.org/volunteer.
