Celebrate by joining Arbor Day work Party at Darnell Park

For the sixth year in a row, the Arbor Day Foundation has recognized the City of Shoreline as a Tree City USA.

Help celebrate by joining your neighbors and fellow native plant enthusiasts at Darnell Park for a brief Arbor Day ceremony and work party led by EarthCorp!

Saturday, November 3, 10:00am to 2:00pm
Darnell Park, 1125 N 165th Street

Volunteers will remove invasive species, replace them with native plants, mulch, and have an all around good time! The City is providing native ground covers, trees, and shrubs for planting.

Dress appropriately; long sleeves and a hat recommended. Tools and gloves will be available, but you will be most comfortable with your own pair of gloves. Feel free to bring a trowel, fork, and/ or loppers if you have them.

For more information, contact Parks Maintenance Superintendent Kirk Peterson 206-801-2611.

Shoreline achieved 2018 Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four standards: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of a least $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit conservation and education organization with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. Started in 1976, the Tree City USA program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year.
