Washington: Green Schoolyards: Investing in Communities

If you care about kids, education, health, equity, or the environment, Green Schoolyards are the solution hiding in plain sight. Transforming dated schoolyards into vibrant green spaces can create healthy communities. The Trust for Public Land hosted a virtual event illustrating how you can help renovate five schoolyards in south and east Tacoma, some of the most park-poor areas in Washington State. Your support can put a great park within a 10-minute walk of 40,000 people!
