Despite the cold temperatures and foggy conditions, a total of 167 volunteers (70 youth and 97 adults) participated in the event for a combined total of 680.75 hours. Approximately 33,346 sq. ft. of land adjacent to First Creek within the Salishan neighborhood in East Tacoma was cleared of invasive plants, garbage and debris.
The organizers would like to thank all who volunteered as well as the Russell Family Foundation who provided the funding to feed the volunteers. Another restoration and planting event along the First Creek watershed is planned for Global Youth Service Day in April.
