Volunteers to restore Cavanaugh Pond habitat

Several dozen King County real estate agents, affiliates and family members will convene at the Cavanaugh Pond Natural Area on Friday, Oct. 12, to help Friends of the Cedar River Watershed with a restoration project.

Volunteers from The REALTORS® Environmental Council (TREC) will lead efforts to help control invasive vegetation and establish native forest for the 44-acre natural area east of Renton on the Cedar River. Cavanaugh Pond, part of King County Parks, supports spawning sockeye salmon in the fall and provides year-round habitat for other fish and wildlife species.

Area residents can join REALTORS at the work party 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Volunteers must pre-register at or by calling 425-974-1011. All tools and supplies, as well as lunch, will be provided.  Participants will be asked to sign the Parks Department’s volunteer waiver form.
