A huge thank you to Brandy LeBlanc and Girl Scout Troop 43752 along with Snohomish County Councilmember Terry Ryan for securing a $5,000 grant to continue the paved trail at Matt Hirvela Bicentennial Park. This trail has been constructed with grant funds and volunteer labor, one section at a time. Thanks to all the scouts and neighbors who have helped improve this park over the last several years. What a great contribution for our community!

The Mountlake Terrace Garden Club needs volunteers to help plant flowers and beautify the city's planting sites near the library and monument signs. Please call Bonnie Mercer, President, if you're able to donate a few hours on a Saturday morning -- even if only once per year. Email the Mountlake Terrace Garden Club.

Brighton School Students

A group of sixth grade students from the Brighton School completed a volunteer project at Hall Creek. Clara Guyot, a sixth grade student at Brighton School, coordinated with the Recreation and Parks Department to have her class complete a project pulling weeds and picking up litter along Hall Creek near Lake Ballinger. Clara and her group, part of the Brighton School Destination Imagination Team, made a presentation to her class discussing the project and its benefits. This project, which was entered in a school competition, helped the city stay in compliance with the Hall Creek Culvert Removal Project.

Earth Day Park Clean Up

Five volunteers working in garden at Earth Day Clean Up

Volunteers pulled invasive weeds along Hall Creek, cleaned up brush and picked up litter at Ballinger Park in honor of Earth Day. Each year, the city asks for help to take on a park project to commemorate Earth Day. In 2015, about 65 new and returning residents and friends helped out and were served lunch by the Mountlake Terrace City Council at Ballinger Clubhouse.

The 2016 Earth Day Park Clean Up was held on April 23 at 9:00 a.m.
