All are welcome to register to help plant 3,000 trees and clean up at Gateway Park and Glenwood Cemetery


Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett will host the annual Earth Day Cleanup on Saturday, April 20, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., at Gateway Park (inside the Gateway Center: 1 Mystic View Rd.) and Glenwood Cemetery (Washington Avenue). 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 will join with community members and local organizations to plant 3,000 trees at Gateway Park. In order to reach this goal, the Mayor is asking all residents to join in on this community effort to help improve Everett’s environment.

Participants will have the opportunity to mulch and plant trees that will help improve the environment and the public park’s green space. Some of the benefits of planting trees include reducing energy usage, removing air pollutants, filtering stormwater and cooling urban areas by providing shade and releasing water vapor.

In addition to planting trees at Gateway Park, those who wish to participate can choose to help beautify Glenwood Cemetery upon registering. This option is limited to 30 volunteers.

Following the cleanup and planting efforts, the City will be hosting a free barbecue at 12 p.m. at Gateway Park for all who participated in the event. Those who wish to participate must register prior to the event by visiting cityofeverett.com/events/earth-day-2024.
