We Heart Seattle is inviting community members to help clean up the Northeast Queen Anne Green Belt from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

That section of the green belt has long been considered hazardous by residents because of its litter, needles, trash and abandoned homeless camp.

Saturday’s clean-up is expected to result in the removal of thousands of pounds of trash.

The clean-up will not involve activity near any current encampments.

Saturday’s event is not for the faint of heart, according to organizers, nor is it family friendly.

To reach the Northeast Queen Anne Greenbelt, walk or take the bus down Aurora Avenue North and enter the greenbelt on the west side of the road.

People can park and access the greenbelt at Taylor Place North or from the Trolly Hill Park.
