Earth Day Volunteers Needed for Carkeek Park, 2011

Looks like we’ve all been invited to Carkeek Park’s Earth Day cleanup and celebration. I went last year and it was a lot of fun:

Join the 31st Annual Carkeek Park Earth Day Celebration

Earth DayGroups, families and individuals will gather to help clean up Carkeek Park on Saturday, April 16.  Activities include storm drain stenciling, and cleaning up litter in and around Carkeek Park.  Last year we collected over 1300 lbs of trash and recyclables!

Councilmember Mike O’Brien, Seattle Public Utilities & Neighborhoods Chair, will help kick off the event.

Where: Meet at the Carkeek Environmental Learning Center at 950 NW Carkeek Park Road.

When: Saturday, April 16, 8:30 am – noon

Registration Required: 206-363-4116

Help us beat last year’s accomplishments!

Best regards,
