In observance of Pierce County Trails Day, the Peninsula Metropolitan Park District (PenMet Parks) is hosting a Pierce County Trails Clean-up Day in partnership with ForeverGreen Trails, on Saturday, July 29, from 9 AM-NOON at Harbor Family Park at 6620-32nd St NW in Gig Harbor.
We need YOU
Calling all eager Gig Harbor area trail walkers and runners. On Pierce County Trails Day, our volunteers will clear out invasive species (like ivy and blackberries), trim overgrown trails, and remove litter and plant debris from the park. Our goal is to remove invasive species, widen trails as needed, and make them more accessible for all who wish to enjoy Harbor Family Park.
If you’re interested in learning more and signing up, visit our Pierce County Trails Clean-Up Day event page. You’ll find volunteer forms and details about getting to Harbor Family Park as well as what to bring to Trails Clean-Up Day.
What to bring
Bring your own garden gloves, clippers, sunscreen, water and sturdy, close-toed shoes. The District will provide litter bags, hand shears, clippers, bottled water and even some snacks.
Please do not bring gas or battery-powered equipment. After we complete our trails clean up, all the debris removed and collected from Harbor Family Park will be removed by our PenMet staff.
If you plan on joining us on that day, or if you are interested in helping at future trails and parks clean-up events, please complete our volunteer registration form. Once completed, it will automatically submit to our Parks Services team.
But wait, there’s MORE
There is a lot of need for your support. PenMet Parks manages 22 parks and properties within unincorporated Pierce County on the Gig Harbor peninsula, outside city limits. The District’s total population has grown steadily since it was formed in 2004 and today PenMet Parks is serving more people than ever before.
