Cross Kirkland Corridor Adopt-a-Trail Program Kicks Off September 8th

On Saturday, September 8th, join Kudos Kirkland and the Highlands Neighborhood to kick off the City of Kirkland's new "Adopt-a-Trail" program. Help spruce up a three-quarter mile section of the new Cross Kirkland Corridor by picking up litter, clipping vegetation, and spreading gravel.

The city of Kirkland purchased 5.75 miles of the old Burlington Northern Railroad corridor in March, 2012, and is actively working on a master plan and funding for a mixed use trail. Until these are in place, the city is requesting citizen help to maintain the corridor. If your organization is interested in adopting a quarter mile section, see the links below for more information.

Details about the event:

  • Saturday, September 8
  • 10 am to noon
  • Meet at the intersection of NE 87th St and 112th Ave NE
  • Garbage bags, safety vests, and some tools provided
  • Bring your own clippers and gloves
  • Refreshments provided
  • Youth under 18 must have parent supervision or a signed waiver (available upon request).
