Find out what on Earth is going on in Kent

April 19, 2013 by  

Earth Day in Kent will invite guests to come out and celebrate Kent’s 43rd annual anniversary of the special occasion.

Family oriented, the day teaches children the spirit of giving through volunteering. Students can easily earn community service hours, which can be used to meet their school requirements. Groups are invited to attend as well. Brochure printers and poster printing through print companies may have been used to share Earth Day with the people in Kent.

During this event, participants will be able to renew friendships, create new acquaintances, and help beautify the community. As part of the celebration, volunteers will be assisting with removing invasive plants such as English ivy and Himalayan blackberry, replenish the trail to make it dryer and safer for visitors, and enjoy working outdoors in the early spring weather around Clark Lake Park.

Guests are reminded to dress appropriately, as this is a rain or shine event, and they should also to wear sensible and sturdy boots or shoes, not forgetting gloves and a shovel. Restroom facilities and hand washing stations are available. People are requested to register for this event, as there is a form that must be completed. Parking is available across the street at Martin Sortun Elementary School.

There is no fee to attend this event, although registration is a must. The Earth Day in Kent celebration will be occurring tomorrow, April 20, starting at 9:00 am at the Clark Lake Park located at SE 248th Street in Kent, Washington.
