Yard Appreciation Day

Caring, Connecting, Community- in your own backyard!

The Parks & Recreation department is inviting our community to participate in Yard Appreciation Day!

Take some time to go outside and get your hands a little dirty. No matter if you have a large backyard or just a potted plant on a patio space. Your small actions can make a big difference. 

Show Your Yard Some Love

Here are some things you can do to show your outdoor space you care
  • Clean our garden beds and get your yard ready for spring with some simple monthly garden tasks provided by the Clark County Master Gardeners 
  • Plant Flowers that are beneficial for pollinators 
  • Start a composting bin for yard debris or food scraps 
  • Install a bird house or bat house
  • Place mulch around plants and tress
  • Participate in the University of Washington Bird Observation Project 
  • Conserve outdoor water use by placing a layer of mulch around plants and tress
