Springtime — plus the promise of better weather and numerous events, activities and amenities — is the time to explore King County parks.
The county parks department is encouraging residents to engage in and and support King County parks.
Spring is a busy time of year, and King County Parks is seeking volunteers to help spiffy up King County’s 26,000 acres of parks and 175 miles of trails.
The agency needs volunteers for weeding, watering and preparing native vegetation for the fall planting season.
People can volunteer individually or as a group, such as co-workers, scout troops, community groups or religious groups.
Residents can also sign up for free mobile coupons through Chinook Book, enjoy savings on offers and support county parks.
Chinook Book donates 25 cents to King County Parks for each person signing up for a free trial pack. Use the promotional code 12002-0012-0120-0207.
Chinook Book also donates $5 to King County Parks for people buying all 275-plus coupons using the same promotional code.
The annual Big Backyard 5K to support county parks is May 22 at Marymoor Park.
