The girls of North Bend Girl Scout Troops 42388, 40944, and 43660, along with volunteers from the local community and Puget Sound Energy, came together on Friday, April 13, for North Bend’s Arbor Day celebration at Torguson Park.

Second and third graders worked as hard as the adults, preparing the planting pits, placing the trees, and backfilling the holes for 15 new Red Cascade Mountain Ash trees in the parking lot at Torguson Park.

This year, the City was awarded a Tree City USA Award from the Department of Natural Resources and the National Arbor Day Foundation, for its commitment to providing and caring for public trees.

For Arbor Day, Puget Sound Energy donated the trees, while Ryan Kolodejchuk prepared the tree pits.  For more information on the City’s tree program, opportunities for volunteer service, or the City of North Bend’s Adopt-a-Park Program, please contact Mike McCarty at, or at (425) 888-7649.
