Help Us Keep Looking Good

Can your business or organization spare one day, four times a year, to help keep one of our City Parks or Trails in beautiful condition?

Please review this brief overview - HOW TO ORGANIZE A CLEAN-UP - to see what is takes for your group to perform this valuable service.

We ask volunteer organizations to perform Park or Trail basic maintenance 4x per year - raking, trash pick-up, sweeping and report any broken equipment to the city. Your group should commit for one year, and provide tools appropriate for the work being done (the city may be able to help with some of the equipment).

In recognition of your support, the City will post a sign prominently at your Park or Trail, and you will also have acknowledgement on the City web page. The sign will be given to your group at the end of your service.

Each volunteer must submit a Volunteer Waiver and a Maintenance Agreement Form prior to working. Parental permission is required for participants under the age of 18.
