Parks Appreciation Day

April 23, 2015 - 9:00am-12:00pm

Parks Appreciation Day is an opportunity for local citizens to help improve their park system, and get some productive exercise.

There is no need to pre-register; just visit one of the identified sites listed below to help the other volunteers, or drop by your favorite park or school for some cleanup. Large groups and organizations should contact the local agency to enable appropriate planning.

If you can’t make it to PAD and would like to volunteer on another date, please contact us.
