The newly reinvigorated Woodlawn Cemetery Perpetual Care Association is seeking groups and individual volunteers to:

-Clear trees, bushes and brush and put them in dumpsters to be hauled away

-Cut English ivy from trees

-Remove trash

-Assist with stream-bed restoration

-Canvass adjacent neighborhoods and information about the cemetery

-Perform research on the people buried there

If you like being outside, getting a cardio and muscular workout, and being able to see the results of your work, this is the opportunity for you.

Individuals, families and groups of all ages are welcome.

We have scheduled monthly events but are also pleased to accommodate groups and individuals who would like to help at other times. After initial orientation, volunteers can work whenever it is convenient for them.

All volunteers receive free orientation, training and equipment. Equipment and water are provided.

Documentation of community service hours and letters of recommendation are available upon request.
