The East Prospect Street End has experienced rapid change since restoration work started back in April, opening up the public right of way to the community and local wildlife.

After months of removing invasive plants and manmade debris from the 11,000-square-foot strip running down to Lake Washington, volunteers came together on Oct. 5 to plant 300 native shrubs.

The last work party of the year to plant another 300 shrubs is set for 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at the end of East Prospect Street, which is accessible via 41st Avenue East, next to the Seattle Tennis Club.

The community lead on the project is Madison Park resident Gene Brandzel, who can be reached at People can also RSVP at or through an online form here.
