Volunteers honor Earth Day at Gold Park

An enthusiastic group of volunteers joined Edmonds Community College LEAF School in an Earth Day/National Day of Service event Saturday at Gold Park in Lynnwood.

Volunteers assisted with restoration efforts, removal of invasive plants and new native plantings. New interpretative signs also were installed throughout the park.

The event was sponsored by Center for Service Learning, Learn and Serve Environmental Anthropology Field (LEAF) School, Snohomish Tribe, Blue Heron Canoe Family and the City of Lynnwood.
