Schedule a time to help us to beautify our parks and green spaces, to make a difference in the community! *UNI's staff is flexible in dates and times, just reach out to us, and we will work to set up a time good for your group*
Meet at Springdale Green, 8300 Longworth Detroit, MI 48209. We will work at one of many public, green spaces that UNI works with the community to maintain. UNI works alongside the Springwells community to steward over 20 acres of land and we need all the help we can get! The work done contributes to sustaining safe, happy, and prospering neighborhoods in Southwest Detroit.
