Hi, all,

I'm having to give up my ten-year native plant restoration at school,
and I want the plants to find homes. I've taken out the rarer plants
already, but there are a lot of a few species left, and I can't get them
out in time by myself (the next few weeks). I'd welcome their salvage
for either public areas or your own yards. You'd have to come to Renton
with your tools, containers, and transport to dig them. Possible times
are most weekdays around 3 p. m., or we can set up a couple of weekend

The bird list for this urban plot included 36 spp., with 11 nesting (and
another collecting material). In its present reduced circumstances, a
Mallard is still incubating.
