Tree Planting on June 4
On Sunday, June 4th, Park City Municipal and Summit Lands Conservancy are partnering up to plant trees, and we need your help!
- Who: You! Volunteers are discouraged from bringing dogs and small children as the work will be moderately strenuous and there will be a lot of activity going on.
- Why: to help tackle climate change
- When: Sunday, June 4th at 9:00 am
- Where: meet at the Quinns Trailhead by the Park City Ice Arena. We’ll plant the trees in Round Valley.
- What (to bring): gloves, a shovel, water and snacks.
Park City has the most ambitious climate goals in North America: net-zero carbon and running on 100% renewable electricity by 2032 for the whole community (and by 2022 for municipal operations). Being a leader means we need to get creative.
Not only are we looking at ways to reduce our carbon emissions, but also exploring how we can increase the amount of carbon that our lands soak up; our carbon sinks. Plants and trees are one of nature’s best carbon sinks, as they capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during photosynthesis and lock it away from the atmosphere for some time.
With advisory from USU extension, we have identified the best tree and shrub species native to Park City that will soak up the most carbon. Now we want to get them in the ground to test which native species grow the best, with the least amount of maintenance and water. The plantings will not be a part of a landscaped area, rather in natural areas. This pilot project, and the outcomes that come from it, will help shape future tree planting sites and carbon sink strategies. Need more info? Contact email@example.com

The piece, by local artist Mike Wong, is titled "Gravity & Gear." Composed of used sporting equipment--including skis, snowboards, and tennis rackets--it reflects our community's love of activity, not to mention our passion for recycling! Mike is getting some help on the final install from his friend Orion Chapman, as well as PCCAPS students. We can't wait to see the final product!
