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.
