Individuals and groups of volunteers can lend a hand in a variety of ways, such as planting trees for an Arbor Day event, mulching and watering gardens, or removing invasive species.
One-time and ongoing opportunities allow volunteers to work with trained MPRB employees to help maintain beauty within existing parks and gardens.
Interested in joining an existing neighborhood garden group? Opportunities exist at Park Siding Park, Lake of the Isles Peavey Fountain, the Stevens Square Overlook Garden, and with the Men’s and Women’s Garden Club of Minneapolis. Email email@example.com for more information.
