A day of service, and sand

Pulling invasive weeds with a lovely view. 

This year, we set a record for our Martin Luther King Day of Service! Over 60 individuals showed up to volunteer their afternoon for our annual invasive weed pull on the beaches in Fort Worden. And thank you Wendy Feltham for taking all the beautiful photos in this post.

PTMSC and FFW volunteers working hard! 

                                   A total of 157 volunteer hours were logged for this event.

And we had volunteers of all ages!

PTMSC volunteers Doug Rogers, Jane Guiltinan, and friends. 

 With so many people having such great energy, we were able to split into two groups and conquer two separate invasive European dune grass patches! 

While doing all of this, everyone maintained plenty of smiles -- even when the wind picked up. 

Take a look at those awesome volunteers and that truck full of weeds! 

Thanks to the Native Plant Society, Washington State Parks, and the Friends of Fort Worden for all your help organizing this remarkable event.

And a big thank you from the AmeriCorps!
