We are canceling our regularly scheduled HPAC meeting for April, which was to be this Wednesday- instead, we would like to encourage our members to join in the first HPAC Greening Committee event on Saturday (4/26) from 9am-12pm at the Delridge and Myrtle Stairway, which runs west from Sanislo Elementary to Delridge. They will be cleaning the stairway of garbage and removing invasive plant species within the right of way and at the south end of the Parks property. This is part of a City wide effort to clean stairways throughout Seattle in partnership with FeetFirst and Seattle Stairways. Come help make Delridge more walkable and help restore native plants in South Delridge. More info and registration can be found on this website: http://seattle.cedar.greencitypartnerships.org/event/5144/
After that event you can hustle over to the Highland Park Improvement Club, host to a Northwest Green Home Tour Event on Saturday (4/26) from 11am to 5pm. HPIC is now a Sustainability Stop on the NW Green Home Tour, an annual tour featuring sustainable homes. Visitors to the HPIC Sustainability Stop will get a chance to check out the newly completed courtyard, participate in a “Design Your Own Rain Garden” activity, talk to RainWise contractors, and hang out with neighbors! Plus, there will be a mini-self guided tour of nearby RainWise rain gardens. Shuttles to South Park will be available between 1pm and 3pm so you can check out how that neighborhood is becoming a green village. The site will be hosted by RainWise, Sustainable Seattle, Stewardship Partners, and the Highland Park neighbors. Check out a full list of NW Green Home Tour stops here (www.nwgreenhometour.com).
