The Burke-Gilman isn’t just the city’s most popular trail, it’s also a long park where people go for transportation, recreation and a little restoration.

Now, you have a chance to give back to the trail that’s given you so much. The Friends of the Burke-Gilman Trail at Sand Point are hosting a series of work parties this month to help restore and clean up the plant life along the northeast Seattle section of the trail.

    These guys are great! I volunteered with them a bit while I was on furlough for the federal shutdown and I was amazed to find out how often they’re there and how much they do!
