Grab your coworkers, school group, or civic group, and come on out to keep Piedmont Park beautiful! Our Day in the Dirt experience provides an extraordinary opportunity for your group to promote community involvement, encourage environmental stewardship, and build teamwork; while making an immediate and tangible impact on the park.
Projects can be scheduled Monday through Friday from 9 am -12 pm or 1-4 pm.
All projects take place outdoors and are based on the current needs of the park
We always have a running list of projects where volunteers can make a difference. Typical projects include pruning, spreading mulch, resurfacing the volleyball courts and running track, rooting out invasive species, cleaning up the park by collecting trash, etc.
No previous experience is necessary, just a willingness to pitch in, get a little dirty and have some fun making a tangible difference in the park
