Volunteer with Your Family, Friends, and Community!
Pitch in to beautify your park! Spend some helping us plant and seed native wildflowers and grasses; clean out winter plant debris from our prairies; clean up litter throughout the park; mulch around park trees; and paint benches and fences!
We’ll bring the supplies (gloves, tools, and some refreshments), just bring yourself, a reusable water bottle, and maybe a friend to get your hands dirty!
Registration required. Please email Aaron to RSVP, including which volunteer shift you prefer.
