Working in cooperation with the City’s Departments of Parks and Recreation and Urban Forestry, we will spend the morning caring for our special park by mulching our existing trees and planting some new ones. This is a great opportunity to meet neighbors, enjoy some wonderful homemade refreshments, and show the City how much we care about our park.

Come out. Join the fun. Many hands make light work.

If you have them, please bring tools — wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes and gloves.
