Mary Gay Park Neighborhood Clean-up and BYO Picnic

Puget Soundkeeper Alliance (Soundkeeper), which monitors creeks in South King County, and the International Rescue Committee (IRC), which has a community garden at Mary Gay Park, are hosting a neighborhood clean-up and picnic* at Mary Gay Park.

This event will feature a clean-up of the park and surrounding area, tours of the community garden at the park, recipes from around the world shared by IRC clients, and water quality demonstrations with youth from Soundkeeper’s Lost Urban Creeks Project. Clean-up supplies (gloves, trash pickers and bags) will be provided by Soundkeeper.

The event will take place on Saturday, May 7th, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mary Gay Park in Des Moines, Washington. The park is located on the corner of S 233rd and 16th Ave S. in Des Moines.

*Note: In this time of Covid, we ask people to bring their own food to the picnic but there will be some international foods to sample. Please join us!
