Battle Ground Parks and Recreation is celebrating National Volunteer Month by hosting a Park Appreciation Day work party at two local parks on Saturday, April 20.
City staff maintain the parks throughout the year but Park Appreciation Day is a way for the community to give back to their local parks by helping make sure Battle Ground stays green and beautiful.
Tasks might include picking up litter, raking and weeding flower beds, cleaning playground equipment or spreading bark and playground chips.
Dress for weather, rain or shine, and bring work gloves and hand tools such as shovels, rakes and hoes if you have them.
You may pre-register through Friday, April 19, 3 p.m. online, by phone at 360-342-5380, or in person at the Community Center located at 912 East Main Street.
You may also register the day of the event.
