Green Kent Partnership Events
- Students - have fun while earning community service credit!
- Families and Individuals - enjoy quality time in the great outdoors.
- Businesses, Clubs and Teams - why not join or host an event near you?
Make an impact you can see! Green Kent volunteers and city staff help restore and maintain our parks and trails using a hands-on approach. Year-round events are held most Saturdays and some Sundays from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, rain or shine. Weekday events can be arranged. Wear socks and sturdy shoes or boots (no flip-flops or sandals) and dress for the weather.
ONLINE GREEN KENT EVENT REGISTRATION ensures that we have adequate tools and staff supervision so our events are safe and fun for everyone. A safety briefing and water are provided at all events. Visit GreenKent.org for more information.
Eagle Scout Projects
Over 230 projects have been completed by Scouts to improve Kent's parks. Eagle Scout candidates should allow a minimum of three months to plan and execute their project. All projects must be completed within six months. For details about available projects, please complete and return the following Eagle Scout Questionnaire by email. You can also mail or deliver it to: Eagle Scout Applications, Kent Parks Planning and Development, 220 Fourth Ave. South, Kent, WA 98032.
Kent Community Garden
Our organic community garden has provided space to grow healthy, fresh food since 1997. Every spring, community volunteers and gardeners help city staff prepare the garden for the season which starts on April 1. Please join us in late March to contribute to this important effort.
