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