Tree Planting on June 4
On Sunday, June 4th, Park City Municipal and Summit Lands Conservancy are partnering up to plant trees, and we need your help!
- Who: You! Volunteers are discouraged from bringing dogs and small children as the work will be moderately strenuous and there will be a lot of activity going on.
- Why: to help tackle climate change
- When: Sunday, June 4th at 9:00 am
- Where: meet at the Quinns Trailhead by the Park City Ice Arena. We’ll plant the trees in Round Valley.
- What (to bring): gloves, a shovel, water and snacks.
Park City has the most ambitious climate goals in North America: net-zero carbon and running on 100% renewable electricity by 2032 for the whole community (and by 2022 for municipal operations). Being a leader means we need to get creative.
Not only are we looking at ways to reduce our carbon emissions, but also exploring how we can increase the amount of carbon that our lands soak up; our carbon sinks. Plants and trees are one of nature’s best carbon sinks, as they capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during photosynthesis and lock it away from the atmosphere for some time.
With advisory from USU extension, we have identified the best tree and shrub species native to Park City that will soak up the most carbon. Now we want to get them in the ground to test which native species grow the best, with the least amount of maintenance and water. The plantings will not be a part of a landscaped area, rather in natural areas. This pilot project, and the outcomes that come from it, will help shape future tree planting sites and carbon sink strategies. Need more info? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org

6/24 SR 224 Road Work Alert - In an effort to complete critical road work before the 4th of July holiday - and to expedite the overall project schedule - crews will begin working on raising utility manhole lids this evening. Northbound and southbound lanes will be restricted to one lane from 9 pm to 6 am. To minimize impacts to the traveling public and due to hot temperatures, this work will be done at night. Crews will begin work on the south end of the project near SR-248 and move to the north. This work is expected to last no longer than a week and they will move through one intersection in one night.
