The Adopt-A-Park/Trail Program provides opportunities to show support for your community by volunteering to maintain the cleanliness and safety of parks and trails.
Your efforts help enhance and maintain our public parks thorugh cleanups, planting trees, weeding, monitoring wildlife, and more!
Anyone interested in adopting a portion of a park or trail is welcome to enroll in the program. Adopters may include, but are not limited to individuals, families, corporations, community groups, and more!
Adoptive groups and individuals will visit the adopted area at least once a month. The adopting groups work in coordination with park staff by checking on the park and reporting needed repairs and maintenance. Depending on interests and skill set, people can take on projects such as picking up litter, removing or pushing aside debris on trails or walkways, clean signs or other structures, monitor trees for dead limbs or hanging branches, and other tasks as needed.
Adopters must submit a Volunteer Application for the individual or group volunteering. Prior to submitting an Adopt-A-Park/Trail application, we encourage the Adopter to visit the site in person to determine the areas of the park or trail most interested in and develop a cleanup task plan.
Once your application is submitted, the Parks and Facilities Manager will schedule a meeting with you to discuss adoption details and create a task plan.
Prior to getting started you will need to sign an agreement along with a waiver. A parent/guardian must sign for anyone in their care who is under the age of 18.
