Give Back to the Environment with Stewardship!

The Gnomes, Blossom, Greenie, and Oak had a wonderful spring, summer, and fall! They have decided to take a little winter vacation in preparation for 2024. In the meantime, there are many opportunities to work with our Friends Group to restore the natural park areas. Help create a healthy habitat for plants, pollinators, birds, and animals. 

What will I do?

  • Plant native species
  • Remove invasive species
  • Refresh park trails
  • Learn about native birds, plants, and pollinators

How do I volunteer? Just show up at the work party site! 

Any forms to fill out? Nope! Just sign in at the work party site.

What do I bring? Bring work gloves and water to drink.

What do I wear? Dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes. 

Can I bring a group with me? Please call or email the work party contact to see if the work party can accommodate a group.

Before attending: Check for work party cancelations due to weather or conditions beyond control.

Want to volunteer but can't make the Friends Group habitat restoration work party dates? Email 

Have a group of over 15 volunteers that need a different work party date? Let's figure out options!
