Kids will flip for this
More than 300 of the world's best gymnasts will head to Comcast Arena when the 2012 Kellogg's Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships open Friday.
But if you can't wait for Friday, Imagine Children's Museum is holding a Gymnastics Night from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday. There will be tumbling, flipping and twirling as folks from Leading Edge Gymnastics Academy show kids how it's done. There will be a guest appearance by Carly Patterson, Olympic gold medalist. Special event admission is $5 for members and $8 for nonmembers at the museum, 1502 Wall St., Everett. Tickets are available at the museum. For more information call 425-258-1006 or go to www.imaginecm.org.

Help plant trees at new park: The band Pearl Jam is paying for native trees and shrubs to be planted in the Stillaguamish River watershed to provide shade and nutrients for salmon.
Volunteers are needed to help plant from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Country Charm Park and conservation area in Arlington.
People who want to help are asked to register by calling or emailing Michele at Sound Salmon Solutions: 425-319-7696 or michele@soundsalmonsolutions.org.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own sack lunches and water bottles. Wear warm clothes and dress for the weather. Rain boots or sturdy shoes are recommended.
