Hi, Rotary Club,
I have some great news… We got the Valley View planting project completed yesterday! Thanks to your team, 185 other volunteers and SMP staff, 5250 native plants have been installed. This project is a great illustration of the community coming together to enhance the environment and provide space for people to connect to nature.
From all of the Summit Metro Parks team, thank you for being a huge part of this project. From digging holes, to ‘running’ for plants, to mulching, to assembling seed packets, to handing out snacks, to being on the standby list… you planned a critical role in making this project a reality.
Please stay tuned for a ribbon cutting event planned for July 30 as the opening date for the area.
P.S. Please share this with the others that join and I wasn’t able to connect to an email address.
