There's no denying that we live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Let's keep it that way.
The King County Parks Department is using Earth Month as a way to motivate volunteers to get out and dig into some of our nicest local parks.
There are tons of different opportunities available to suit your commitment level. Work with the Sound Stewards to repair shorelines along the Duwamish, watch for spawning salmon, or just rip out non-native weeds like a crazy person.
Some jobs even see you hiking into backcountry parks that average Joes never get to visit.
The sun is out (mostly), the rain has stopped (hopefully), and it's finally time to get outside.
It's a great workout, good karma and you might just learn something — or meet someone — in the process.
