The cleanup will last until 3 p.m. Lunch will be provided for volunteers.

This event is co-sponsored by the Audubon Outdoor Club.

This is a great opportunity for church groups, scouts and others to help beautify the park in time for the spring season. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing for the weather. Volunteer projects will include painting, planting trees, placing fire rings, and other sprucing-up tasks.
