Earth Day Celebration
Friday, April 22, 2016
1-2pm Johnston-Kelly Park, 49th St. SW and Forest Dr.
View Ridge Elementary School students have been helping to improve Johnston-Kelly Park for more than 20 years! Following tradition, students will join Everett Parks & Recreation and celebrate Earth Day by planting a tree and helping to clean up the park.
Trees breathe fresh air into the city and enhance the everyday comings and goings of residents and visitors alike. That’s why Everett Parks & Recreation is embarking on a tree inventory, thanks to a grant from the USDA Forest Service and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.
More than 2,000 trees throughout 30 of Everett’s park landscapes will be assessed for their size, health, value, diversity and maintenance needs. This inventory will help parks staff manage our urban forest resource.
The tree inventory continues Everett’s commitment to preserving and improving the environment for future generations.
