Volunteer Days are back
The Friends’ monthly volunteer projects are back in full swing after a short summer break. Volunteers will visit a new park location each month for trash pick-up, trail maintenance, graffiti and invasive plant species removal, and overall clean-up and beautification of parks and the river.
Projects have been posted on HandsOn Richmond for November 2018 through May 2019, so you can save the dates and register to volunteer for these projects now. Specific tasks and location will be sent to volunteers the week of the upcoming volunteer project.
Volunteers should dress appropriately for the weather and working conditions around the park. Closed-toe shoes are required, long pants and shirts are encouraged. Expect clothes and shoes to become dirty, possibly wet, or get paint on them, depending on the task for the day. Volunteers should bring their own water bottles and gloves if you have them. Youth volunteers are the responsibility of the adult volunteers serving with them – please use your judgment when registering.
