Voice Your Support at City Council Meetings and with Council Members

Please voice your steady support of 5 Acre Woods, and ask the City for more commitment and engagement with Seattle Public Utility for more time to acquire funding. Here is how you can help your voice be heard:

Commenting on the project at City Council meetings the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at 7pm. Consider attending the whole meeting as the Council also discuss issues pertaining green space in LFP and might even discuss 5 Acre Woods at the end of their session. Read this city link on how to provide public comments.  You can provide a written copy of your comments. If you do, please send a version to Wendy Karle <>

The second best method is to write to the Council members and the Mayor Johnson. Please copy us at so that we can get your email as well. You can also call them individually at the city main phone line and leave a message: 206-368-5440.

With your permission, we may publish your testimonial. See Testimonials

Join the Community to Walk to 5 Acre Woods

LFPSF and the Friends of 5 Acre Woods invites the community to a Walk to 5 Acre Woods, at 10:30 am the first Saturday of the month (unless specified otherwise). Walk to 5 Acre Woods is a good way to learn of the project and its updated status, and how to help. Every walk features a guest. Here are the guests featured for the next Walks (also see 5AW Calendar of events):

Saturday May 6 at 10:30: Tony Angell, LPF resident and accomplished artist, illustrator, writer and avid naturalist. He will recount his experiences living with and observing the urban wildlife of our forests.

Saturday June 3 at 10:30: Ben Pedigo, grew up in LFP, and became very interested in birds. Let’s hear Ben speak to us of the songs and identification of the birds inhabiting our woods.

Saturday July 8 at 10:30: Sarah Cooke, wetland biologist will speak to the life inhabiting wetlands, plants and animals, and its contribution in the ecology of our forest. Sarah has also performed the wetland delineation of 5 Acre Woods and can speak to it more in details.

To join the Walk, meet in front of the LFP Elementary School (18500 37th Ave NE, LFP – Parking available in the school parking lot) and proceed along the pedestrian walkway on40th Place NE, to take a short walk to 5 Acre Woods. Refreshment will be provided at the end of the walk, courtesy of Honey Bear Bakery and the Seattle Coalition for Green Spaces.
