Ready to get rid of some pavement? This is your day! Volunteers will work together to remove 2,750 square feet of pavement and make way for a new green space!

After walking by a usually empty parking lot during the pandemic, community members living around Peck Fields nominated the lot to be Depaved. Metro Parks Tacoma, who owns the parking lot, has agreed to taking out parts of the parking lot to replace it with a new rain garden, trees, and pollinator plants. By replacing pavement with rain gardens and green spaces, we can reduce the amount of polluted stormwater runoff that goes into our gutters and out to the Salish Sea.

Join PCD, Metro Parks, the Central Neighborhood Council, and others to Depave Peck and make way for new green spaces in the neighborhood. Free pizza will be provided for volunteers!

Description

The Pierce Conservation District works with the community to improve water quality, promote sustainable agriculture, create thriving habitat, and build a just and healthy food system for all, through education, community engagement, and financial and technical assistance. Our district’s roots run deep in our community. Created in 1949 as part of a national response to the ecological disaster of the 1930s known as the Dust Bowl, we have worked for over 65-years to help local farmers, cities, and citizens address numerous sustainability challenges. Conserving our natural resources for future generations gets more difficult with each year, making the work of Pierce Conservation District more important than ever.
