HELP MAINTAIN THE PARK

Help beautify landscaped areas, pick up trash, assist with plantings, remove invasive species, clean and repair benches, rehabilitate natural surface trails, and do other general park maintenance.

Memorial Park Conservancy’s biggest volunteer event of the year is in January. Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help plant trees in support of conservation efforts in the park. This is a perfect opportunity for high school clubs, teams, and individuals to gain service hours and learn about park maintenance. Check out our website, memorialparkconservancy.org, for updates!
