Park Monitor
Volunteers agree to periodically observe the conditions at the municipal parks. Each monitor notes the times and dates of visits, and reports vandalism and safety hazards. Each monitor must be familiar with all park rules and maintenance needs. If immediate troubles are encountered, he or she calls 911, but does not engage in confrontations.

Plan events to raise money or assist in one of our many fundraising efforts.

Volunteers help plant flowers, shrubs, and trees and maintain planting beds.
