It's My Park Day: Landscape Cleanup at the Ney - Volunteer Opportunity
Saturday, November 5, 2022 (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (CDT)
Join us for the Landscape Cleanup at the Ney! For It's My Park Day this year, we are going to work with community members to refresh the natural grounds surrounding the Elisabet Ney Museum. Spots will fill up fast so be sure to register soon!
Volunteers will help spread mulch, tidy the gravel paths and remove invasive plants and weeds. This is a great opportunity to learn about the unique history and ecosystem that compose the museum's native landscape.
The museum will provide some tools, but we are encouraging participants to bring grubbing tools, weed wrenches, rakes, and wheelbarrows if they have any of these items. We also recommend bringing gloves and a water bottle as well as wearing work appropriate clothing.
Pre-registration is required. After registering through the Young Chamber website, you will receive a confirmation email with additional instructions. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions. Registration will close at 5pm on November 4th or when all spots have been filled.
