    Join DIRT Corps in revitalizing the southwest portion of Westcrest Park. The first step to bringing back this parcel is to remove invasive species. Once we have cleared the land, we will plant in later volunteer events.

    The beginning of this volunteer event will include a brief weed ID education class. Learn about the different types of invasives, why they are harmful, and how to get rid of them. Combine knowledge with action as we work together to clear this beautiful space of harmful species that overtakes an area. Many of you might already have this experience in your own backyard!

    There will be more events to come where we gradually transform and maintain Westcrest and make it a great public space for everyone to enjoy. Let us know of any questions, hope to see you out there!

    Date: September 18, 2017
    Time: All Day

    Location: Sheraton Seattle Hotel, 1400 6th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101, USA

    Within the western region of North America lies Cascadia. Although the boundaries of the region differ depending on ecological, political, economic or cultural lines - it's undeniable that Cascadia is expansive. The climate of Cascadia calls for adaptation of building materials, plants, media, and maintenance models. After years on the east coast, CitiesAlive 2017 is highlighting the necessity of green roofs and walls alongside the region's unique characteristics.

    For the first time, Seattle will host CitiesAlive®: 15th Annual Green Roof and Wall Conference. This year's conference will celebrate the region featuring content specific to the Pacific Northwest.

    At CitiesAlive we will explore the science behind green roof and wall performance, technology, and design through the lens of the different climates and cities within Cascadia. Discover new products and services at the CitiesAlive® trade show, tour some of Seattle's best green infrastructure projects, and enhance your professional practice with continuing education and networking events.
