ARBOR DAY / EARTH DAY ACTIVITY
Each year, the Renton Community Services Dept. and the Parks Dept. conduct a celebration of these two days by hosting an enhancement project at one of Renton’s parks or other public areas. Typically, about 200 citizens from throughout Renton turn out.
This year’s activity will take place on Saturday, April 27th , at 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The location is the brand-new May Creek Trail, located at 4260 Lake Washington Blvd. North (at the May Creek Bridge). The Parks Dept. staff will have a variety of projects lined up, including planting of native trees and shrubs, and other easy tasks. At the conclusion of the projects (around noon), a hot dog lunch will be served!
Volunteers should dress for whatever weather we have on that day, and it’s a good idea to bring a suitable pair of work gloves. All tools will be provided by the Parks Dept.
Please call the Renton Community Services Dept. at 425-430-6600 to register (and be sure to mention that you are a Kennydale resident). Minors 17 years and younger must have a “Permission Form” signed by a parent or guardian, and minors 14 and under must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. The permission form can be found below.
We invite you to join with your family, friends or co-workers and participate in this event. You will find it to be a very rewarding experience, and the results of your efforts will be very visible and much appreciated by all who utilize the trail!
KNA is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Kennydale and fostering community spirit.
