Please join us as we learn and discuss our own city’s efforts at combating climate change. We can feel how different our climate is every day, and we can all work together to turn things around!

Park Walk – Bellevue Botanical Gardens
The gardens are always a favorite – enough walking to get a decent workout without being daunting. We will meet at 10 AM in the parking lot; as always look for the guy in the hat and beard. We have no set route and will focus on just enjoying the gardens, both strictly kept and wilder. Bring a raincoat and brolly, at least a hat – but be prepared for better weather too. Where: Bellevue Botanical Gardens Parking Lot, 12001 Main Street Bellevue, WA 98005 When: Saturday, June 3, 9 AM to 11:30-ish We have our park walk schedule (below) set for most of the year based on member input, with possible additions for park ranger walks and coordinating with the city. Want something not on the list? By all means, let us know! Bellevue Botanical June 3 Lake Hills Greenbelt Park June 11 Lewis Creek Park June 24 Lake Hills Community park
Lake Hills Neighborhood Association Celebrates Earth Day!
The Lake Hills Neighborhood Association Annual Earth Day Celebration on April 23, 2023 is focused on what we can do to make our planet better for us all. I remember well the first Earth Day – we were going to change the world and save it! Turns out that saving needs to happen all the time and in everything we do, much like cleaning house. We will continue to show energy savings in transportation – EVs (including an electric motorcycle!), standard and electric bicycles will all be on display. We will also demonstrate how lawn and garden care can make a substantial impact by eliminating petrol-based fertilizers. 300 trees will be back with a selection of appropriate trees to take home and plant too. The kids will have hands-on activities, books from King County Library, and a list of further resources to take home. Date: Sunday, April 23, 2023 Time: 1-3 pm Location: Lake Hills Shopping center, 15510 Lake Hills
Love Thy Neighbor!
It’s time for our first LIVE meeting in over 2 years, and we have a great lineup of speakers for you. Our topic this month is the different organizations right here in Bellevue and Lake Hills that assist with homelessness and other needs of our neighbors. We’ll be discussing the ways the different organizations help, and what they need from us to continue to assist in our area. We have the following groups scheduled to speak: Cares, with the City of Bellevue Mary’s Place, a women’s shelter in Bellevue Hopelink, right here in Lake Hills Bellevue Boys and Girls Club, on how they help homeless children Congregations for the Homeless, who is building a men’s shelter in Eastgate Our new venue is right in the middle of Lake Hills, so hopefully this will be convenient for everyone. We look forward to getting together again with neighbors and friends. Bring a neighbor with you to the meeting! Date: February 16, 2023
