If your family, group or organization is looking for an opportunity to take an active role in keeping Eau Claire beautiful, there are several ways you can volunteer:
- Adopt-a-Park, Adopt-a-Trail, Adopt-a-Flowerbed: Volunteers pick up litter, report vandalism, help with special projects or weed flowerbeds.
- Park or Trail Clean-up: This is a one-time cleanup of a park or trail area.
The 12th Annual “The Amazing Eau Claire Clean-Up" is scheduled for Saturday, April 25, 2020 from 9:00am-12:30pm. The event, organized by Eau Claire Parks, Recreation, and Forestry, sends volunteers to assigned locations throughout the city including community parks, neighborhood playgrounds, picnic areas, recreational trails, and downtown to pick up litter. Following the clean-up, volunteers are invited to Boyd Park at 11:30am for lunch, recognition, and prizes. The Amazing Eau Claire Clean-up is a great opportunity for people to work together and make a difference in our community.
Registration Form (Register by Friday, April 17th.)
Groups can adopt a public flower garden. The City will provide the materials. The group will plant and maintain the bed for one year. The City will install a sign at the site recognizing the group. These projects require a few hours of time each month during the spring and summer to plant flowers, pull weeds and mulch beds. This can be a great opportunity to meet other gardening enthusiasts, learn more about plant care, gain experience in garden design and plant selection, and beautify our community.
The Community Services Department is looking for volunteers to help maintain public flower gardens and assist in keeping our parks clean. The focus is citywide beautification and promoting community pride through volunteerism.
Every time you plant a tree, you help improve our environment. Each tree planted can have a positive impact on our city. Trees shade our neighborhoods, capture particulate air pollution and store carbons from emissions. Help beautify Eau Claire and encourage your organization to volunteer for this project.
