Volunteer at our Saturday Workdays!

Volunteer workdays in 2022: after 3 snowy weekends, we are ready to get out to the park and beautify!

This winter, we are hosting 4 cleanup/beautification workdays at the park. Workdays are a great opportunity to build community, earn volunteering credit, and support the park. All ages and abilities welcome! 

They are scheduled for the following Saturday’s from 10am-Noon:

February 5 (this Saturday!)

February 26

March 12

March 26

Our workdays will continue year-round, so stay tuned for Spring and Summer dates!

Join Us This Saturday! 

WHAT

We will be cleaning up the bio-retention area next to the bridge on the east side of the park. We’ll cut out invasive trees (mimosa & privet), pull out brambles and cut back tall flower stalks. Then in the spring and summer it will be lush, full of flowers and protect the park from flooding. 

WHERE

We’ll meet at the bridge near Hunt and Foster Street (across from the entrance to the pavilion) at 10am. Look for Erin and Bryce and a couple of wheelbarrows full of tools. 

WHAT TO BRING

We’ll provide tools and have plenty of gloves. Please bring your own water bottle and if you prefer to use your own tools and gloves, bring those too!

 

If you can’t find us, please feel free to call or text Erin at 919-794-8194 and we’ll find you. 

 

Our volunteer workdays take place during the Durham Farmers’ Market. The farmers’ market will be open from 10-Noon as well, so there will be a lot of folks around… and lots of good food too. 

If you can’t join us this Saturday, sign up here to receive updates about future workdays.

 

See you Saturday!
