While the grown-ups rocked out to the likes of Dana Lyons, Night Train, BDC, Palmer Junction and Howling Rain, the kids hung out with Smokey the Bear and learned the importance of fire safety and preventing forest fires from folks from the King County Foresty Program as well as firefighters from King County Fire Protection District No. 47.
When they got hungry, they headed over to check out the spread provided by Rainier Catering & Barbecue, Inc. And in the state of appreciating their natural surroundings, attendees checked out various tents representing environmental and/or political causes and outdoors recreational opportunities as well.
Then, as the afternoon sun beat down on the gathering, many took to wading, swimming and frolicking in the Green River nearby to cool off.
It may all have been fun and partying Saturday but the 'Rock the Green' event benefits the Middle Green River Coalition, with all proceeds (there was also an auction) going toward the protection of the middle Green River and the Green - Duamish River Watershed.
The coalition protects and enhances open spaces in the Middle Green River watershed to ensure long-term habitat health and recreation opportunities. It is dedicated to protecting the Green River Gorge and Middle Green River Watershed.
Share with Us: The Green River provides ample opportunities for summer fun in the Plateau area but represents much more than that. We'd like to hear you tell us what it, and the natural habitat around the river, means to you as a resident of the Plateau. Upload photos of recent days out with your family to this story, or share with us in the comments below your memories or thoughts on why it's important to conserve land and quality of life in the Middle Green River watershed.
