Families invited to Concord Earth Day work party

The City of Concord will sponsor its first Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 23 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at Newhall Community Park, 1351 Newhall Parkway.

"We are setting this morning aside to celebrate our planet, and make improvements to one of the community's most well-used parks," says Concord Events Program Coordinator Shannon Griffin.

Families are invited to assist with tree plantings, path restoration, creek clean-up, trash pick-up and the planting of a butterfly garden.

The check-in tent will be located near the playground. Participants are advised to bring gloves and shovels if they have them, and to come in their favorite work clothes.
