Event Description:
You're invited to give back in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Volunteers are needed to assist with mulching to help beautify the area around the park.

Impact:
Mulching plays an important role in well landscaped areas as it controls weed growth, provides moisture for plants, and an overall positive aesthetic look to the park.

Volunteer Duties:
Volunteers will spread mulch around the landscaped areas. Volunteers will help fill wheelbarrows, run wheelbarrows, and dump mulch in identified landscape beds, and rake mulch.

Work Environment:
This project will be outside so we recommend dressing for the weather. There is a possibility of uneven ground. There is a restroom on site.

All volunteers must register. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Each volunteer must sign a release form. Those under 18 years of age must have a parent/guardian sign their form.
