PORT TOWNSEND — In honor of Earth Day, the Port Townsend Main Street Program has planned weeding, painting, clean up, and maintenance projects on Saturday.
Volunteers are invited to help with Earth Day cleanup projects from 9 a.m. to noon.
Participants are asked to bring hand tools, gloves, and wear work clothes. They will meet at Adams Street Park but volunteers are asked to RSVP before showing up, said Mari Mullen, Main Street executive director.
To RSVP, call the Main Street office at 360-385-7911 or email [email protected]
Merchants in the historic districts also are asked to give special attention to their storefronts, pick up sidewalk litter, and spruce up planters and/or order flower baskets for their stores, Mullen said.
Those who acquire flower baskets can have Main Street water and maintain them by signing up by calling 360-385-7911 or emailing.
Main Street has maintained some 120 baskets in past years, Mullen said.
Additional Port Townsend Main Street beautification and maintenance projects include year-round maintenance of the Tyler Street portolettes, bird abatement, Adams Street Park, rain garden maintenance, and streetscape design-related projects.
Main Street also will set out additional tables and chairs on Taylor Street and along Water Street.
Business owners interested in partnering with the Port Townsend Main Street Program to purchase additional streetscape furniture, can call 360-385-7911 or email [email protected]
