Residents Plant Trees at Gateway Park in Celebration of Earth Day

On Sunday, April 21, volunteers joined together to celebrate Earth Day by planting trees at Gateway Park for the City of Everett’s annual Earth Day celebration.

In celebration of Earth Day, which is recognized every year on April 22 to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement, the City joined with community members and local organizations to plant thousands of trees. Volunteers mulched and planted trees that will help improve the environment and the public park’s green space for many more years to come.

Following the planting efforts, the City hosted a free barbecue to thank all of the volunteers who participated. Thanks to the efforts of all of the volunteers, this event was a success.

“Our Earth Day event is always a special one because it brings so many of us together to achieve something that will have a positive impact for all of us,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “Thank you to everyone who took time to come today and show your commitment to our City. It’s spectacular to see every year.”
