Please join Bassett Creek Volunteers for the fall buckthorn removal in Bassett's Creek Park! Volunteers will cut, pull and haul buckthorn to make way for native plants, learn about the creek watershed and a new ecological restoration plan for Bassett’s Creek Park, and celebrate with free drinks at Utepils.

All are welcome. This is a family-friendly event with work suitable for all ages. No experience is needed.

Snacks and beverages provided at the event. All participants will receive a Utepils drink ticket to be used afterward (tickets can be used for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages).

Meet at the public entrance on Chestnut Avenue. Bring sturdy shoes and gloves, hand saws and shrub loppers, if you have them. No registration is required, but RSVPs are helpful.
