Trail Volunteers at Work
Montgomery Parks has over 400 parks in Montgomery Parks, and we are always on the lookout for groups like yours to come on out and get back to nature, and help with various projects throughout Montgomery County!
Some of the types of projects we have include:
Park & Stream Cleanups, keeping it all from going downstream and detroying the natural environments of our parks
"Weed Warrior" for a Day, removing non-native plant species to help save the forests!
Trail Workdays, keeping up the favorite park resource for all to enjoy!
Tree Survival Days, making sure our newly planted trees survive by placing or fixing cages around them, removing weeds, mulching and pruning.
Garden Days, helping fix up gardens around our nature centers or other locales.
Storm Drain Painting, helping to spread the word about not dumping into our storm drains
And maybe an idea your group thought up that we didn't realize we needed, but do!
