Registration ClosesAug 15, 2020 12:00am or when space runs out.
The city is currently facing a hiring freeze and staff shortages, and while parks are seeing record usage, our friends at PARD just aren't able to keep up with all the trash! YOU can help. Here's how: 
1. Leave No Trace
Whenever you visit our parks trails and green spaces, be sure to follow leave no trace guidelines. Make sure anything you bring into the park, comes back out with you. Don't leave trash or any items in the park. 
2. Volunteer at a distance
If you head out to a park, maintain social distance and give back at the same time! Bring a trash bag and some kitchen tongs/gloves with you and pick up any trash you see. Note: if the trash you pick up at the park will not fit in the park trash cans or on-site dumpsters please take it home to dispose of it! PARD staff are only able to handle the regular amount of trash in trash cans, so please do not stack up excess outside of these.
Your help in keeping the parks clean will be SO valuable. Stay safe, and don't forget to wear a mask!
