The Piedmont Park Conservancy "Day in the Dirt" Program provides an extraordinary opportunity for your group to promote volunteerism, encourage environmental stewardship, and build teamwork; while making Piedmont Park a more beautiful and welcoming place to bike, run, walk and play.
In addition to individual volunteers, the Park benefits greatly from the generosity of civic, school, youth and corporate groups. To schedule a "Day in the Dirt" group service day or learn more about this program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404.875.7275 x242.
