Normandy Park City Manager’s Report for week ending April 19, 2024

StormFest is back, and Support is needed!

Inspire the next generation of environmental stewards and motivate students to care about stormwater and their local streams! Community members are needed to support StormFest, an interactive stormwater festival for Highline Public Schools 6th-grade students.

Stormfest will be held in person on June 4th, 5th, and 6th at Des Moines Beach Park. And you can earn up to $500! As always, training, support, and lunch will be provided. If you need a refresher about the event and how much fun it is, check out the latest StormFest video from 2023. Can’t commit to all three days? Consider becoming a volunteer. Please apply for this opportunity by May 6th!

Why should you participate?

  • StormFest provides people a chance to interact with other local environmental professionals. You never know what kind of connection you will make!
  • StormFest provides an opportunity to connect with the next generation of environmental stewards
