The Green Redmond Day tree planting event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 28 at various parks throughout the city.
Locations and times for volunteers to get involved can be found at www.greenredmond.org under the “events” tab and advanced registration is strongly encouraged, a press release from the City of Redmond said.
The Green Redmond Partnership puts on the event, which is a collaboration between the city, Forterra and volunteers. It has been happening since 2009 and has brought more than 1,000 acres of forested parkland into active management.
Activities include removing non-native and invasive plants as well as planting native trees and shrubs.
Other cities partner in a regional effort to manage parks across Puget Sound, including Seattle, Kirkland, Everett and Snoqualmie.
The cities restore and maintain more than 9,000 acres of publicly-owned urban natural areas and forests, the press release said.
No experience is necessary to participate and tools will be provided.
