There’s no better way to start your weekend than by taking in the fresh air at a local park and getting your hands dirty! Come find out for yourself by coming out to Forest Park and volunteering with the Green Everett Partnership! Help us to improve the habitat of this park by removing invasive weeds and spreading mulch to add nutrients back to the forest. Restoration work parties are a great way to give back to Everett Parks, meet new neighbors, build community, and burn calories! Bring the family; children are welcome!
