Earth Gay Tacoma brought out 30 of the ‘City of Destiny’s’ finest volunteers to revitalize one of the cities oldest and most active spaces, Wright Park. Over the course of 4 hours, volunteers spread a few tons of mulch around the central pond to protect the water from stormwater runoff carrying trace chemicals, which risk creating algae blooms in the water, poisoning it for the ducks and other critters who rely on it. We also created mulch rings around more than a dozen large trees to protect their base from ivy or other weeds that could infringe on their health. With inspiring words from City Councilmember Ryan Mello and State Representative Laurie Jinkins, and the sweat from our enthusiastic volunteers, it was a great first Earth Gay in Tacoma, WA!
