Kent Cares about the Environment

With the support of the City of Kent, Kent residents regularly show their love of the environment, frequently volunteering for outdoor projects to keep our parks clean.

October 15th, 2015

With the support of the City of Kent, Kent residents regularly show their love of the environment, frequently volunteering for outdoor projects to keep our parks clean, rid them of invasive plants, planting new trees and shrubs, and more. If you’re planning an October visit to Kent, Washington, consider volunteering for one of these great events…or stop by to see what kind of work we’re doing!

Releaf at Clark Lake Park, Oct. 10, 9 am to noon (rain or shine)

Join Kent Parks for the 14th annual ReLeaf event at Clark Lake Park, a 130-acre park featuring open spaces, walking trails and Clark Lake. With the guidance of Green Kent Partnership stewards, volunteers will work three different areas. Tools and light refreshments will be provided. Volunteers should park at Martin Sortun Elementary at 12711 SE 248th Street, Kent.

Arbor Day in Kent, Riverview Park, Oct. 17, 9 am to noon (rain or shine)

Wait? Isn’t Arbor Day in April? Well, normally, yes, but October is a better time for planting trees, so the event has been moved to October. The city will celebrate its 13th year of being a proud Tree City USA by planting 125 fast-growing trees to celebrate the city’s 125th anniversary. The trees will provide shade along the Green River to help protect our salmon.

Green Kent Day, Green River Natural Resources Area, Oct. 24 and Oct. 31, 9 am to noon (rain or shine)

Join volunteers at the Green River Natural Resources area on Sat., Oct. 24 and Oct. 31 for the 4th annual Green Kent Day to help the Green Kent Partnership stewards to plant and mulch wildflowers in a meadow area a short walk from the north end of Van Doren’s Landing Park in the valley. Lunch will be provided by Farrington Court afterward.

We love our Kent parks and open spaces! Won’t you join us to see why we’re so proud?
