This summer, lend a hand at community gardens and local natural areas. Each week, the park district will host a workday for teens to assist with invasive plant removal, planting native plants, community garden maintenance, harvesting and more. Tools, gloves, a t-shirt and instruction will be provided. This is a great opportunity to spend time outdoors, get involved in the community, and gain new skills, experiences and professional references!
Call 217-384-4062 to sign up sign up at least two days in advance each workday. Maximum of 10 volunteers per workday.
