Parks and Recreation is excited to announce a Comprehensive Volunteer Program that will give residents an opportunity to leave a lasting impact on Parks and Recreation facilities, greenspace and programs. Volunteer activities can be short-term, such as a morning planting trees or long-term, such as being a therapeutic recreation buddy for outings or classes.
