The Carkeek Watershed Community Action Project is looking for volunteers to help clean up Carkeek Park on Saturday, April 16, for the 31st Annual Carkeek Park Earth Day Celebration.
Families, individuals and community groups can help with storm drain stenciling, and cleaning up litter in and around Carkeek Park. Last year, 90 volunteers collected more than 1,200 pounds of garbage and recyclables, and stenciled 60 storm drains.
Seattle City Councilmember Mike O’Brien, who chairs the Seattle Public Utilities and Neighborhoods committees, will help kick off the event.
Volunteers should meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Carkeek Environmental Learning Center, 950 NW Carkeek Park Rd. The cleanup event runs until 12 p.m. Registration is required; call 206-363-4116.
