Teens to plant shrubs at Mercer Slough Park


Thirty teenage volunteers will plant 1,000 shrubs and flowers in Bellevue’s Mercer Slough Park Saturday as part of their final school service project for the year.

The volunteers are members of the YMCA Earth Service Corp, an environmental service-learning program. The planting will continue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is part of a radio-tower restoration project at the park. The park is at 2101 118th Ave. S.E.
