We're thankful for all our volunteers.  This year's event is dramatically different due to COVID precautions, but we are pleased to offer a safe event to be able to help our Park. 

NOTE:  the DIFFERENT LOCATION -- large parking lot off Harrison Ave. 

Our volunteer needs are for Wednesday, April 21 and Thursday, April 22 (Earth Day!)   You will help at the big tent where we will have our annual plant sale, T-shirt sale, hand-out event T-shirts and awards.

The tent will be open for the public from 3-7pm.  Setup and take-down is an hour before and after.   The volunteer slots are 2-4, 4-6 and 6-8pm.

Our event is very different this year. The walk, run, and bike is via the RunGo App and can be completed at the convenience of the registrants.  They will pick up their T-shirts, Swag, etc at a tent set-up in the Park Parking lot off Harrison.  

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, and received COVID vaccine(s). The big tent goes rain or shine.  You must wear a mask.  And, we will provide face shields if you would like.   And, we'll have gloves and sanitizer.  You must provide your own water and snacks. 

Volunteers may purchase  t-shirts at $5 discount.
