United Way MLK Day of Service
Please join us in what we believe helps to fulfill Martin Luther King’s belief in service.
The forest in Kiwanis Ravine is maturing slowly, and older alders and maples die of old age while young conifers grow in their place. This is forest succession, an ecological process. Non-native plant species take advantage of gaps to invade, degrading the area’s wildlife habitat value. We seek volunteers to help clear away weeds and spread new mulch to allow native shrubs and trees to grow. No experience necessary! Office, school, and community organizations welcome, and individuals and families.
Through habitat restoration, community outreach, public education and ongoing advocacy, HHH works to ensure the great blue heron continues to thrive throughout the Puget Sound region. We do this because we believe the great blue heron – and other wildlife native to this area – contributes immeasurably to the unique quality of life we enjoy here in the Pacific Northwest.

Maintain the Stevens Site
We’re looking for one or two volunteers to work with an HHH team member for three hours once or twice a month doing general weeding and trail maintenance. We can work with your schedule and no experience is necessary. The Stevens Site it at the end of Brygger Drive W, not far from the Shell station at Gov’t Way and 34th Ave W in Magnolia. For more information or to volunteer:
If digging in the dirt isn’t your thing but you would love to be involved, there are many other opportunities!
- Public relations – Be the “go to” person for contacting local publications and community organizations telling them of HHH’s accomplishments and activities.
- Become a citizen scientist – Observe and record on the heron colony during nesting season.
- Website guru – Help us keep our website up to date with occasional blog posts and event listings.
- Outreach – Help us organize events, staff a booth at local farmers markets, get groups involved in restoration parties and more.
- We’re open to new ideas – Feel free to contact us with suggestions for events and activities!

Become a “Watchdog” for illegal dumping:
It is illegal to dump yard waste, or any other material, in city ravines and parks. Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is in charge of dumping complaints, and they would like to hear about any dumping in Kiwanis Ravine. The phone number is 206-684-7587, or you can do it online at SPU.
