The sun is (mostly) shining, flowers are in bloom and it’s time to embrace the unmistakable signs of spring in the Pacific Northwest.
The City of Renton will celebrate Arbor Day/EarthDay on Saturday, April 28 as a way to honor its commitment to future generations. This annual event promotes the tree planting, environmental stewardship and respect for natural resources.
Renton’s Arbor Day/Earth Day celebration is an opportunity to have fun and reduce harmful environmental impacts. Join hundreds of volunteers at Renton Senior Activity Center, 211 Burnett Ave. N, to plant trees and flowers, spread landscaping chips, and clean areas in the park.
Unite and take action to protect the environment, staring with your city. Call the Community Services Department at 425-430-6600 to register. Volunteers are encouraged to dress for the weather, minors must have parental permission, and children 14-years-old or younger must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. Check-in begins at 9 a.m., and the event will run from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
