FLSSP Invites Corporate Teams to Participate in Habitat Restoration

Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park invites organizations to participate in habitat restoration projects at the park as a perfect team-building activity and a way to give back to the community.  FLSSP provides trained leaders to help develop custom restoration projects for large groups year-round.

Since 2014, FLSSP has offered restoration projects for individual volunteers each month. The nonprofit group is now building upon this successful program by providing a venue for corporations and organizations to offer team-building to their employees.

“Corporate team building has risen to a new level as more companies turn employees toward habitat restoration work parties,” said Debbie Berto, FLSSP president. “The latest company to join to the movement is Target, who have committed to bringing employees from numerous King County store locations to tackle invasive non-native plants at Lake Sammamish State Park.”

Teams from Microsoft divisions also accomplished much work at the park this past fall, she added.

Tools, training water and snacks are provided. Volunteers should dress for the weather and wear boots and work gloves. Groups can also reserve picnic shelters at the park.
