Volunteers are wanted to become stewards for the Green Kent Partnership to help restore city parks and open spaces.

An orientation is set for 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 23 at the Kent Senior Activity Center, 600 E. Smith St.

The orientation will provide explain how to get involved as a steward of your own restoration site or supporting other stewards. You will also get a basic understanding of “tree-iage” and the four phases of restoration, plus have a lot of hands-on fun learning planting techniques and invasive removal.
