Volunteer at Lincoln Park for National Public Lands Day

All those things you think would make Lincoln Park look a bit better? Come out and help make some of them a reality!

On Sept. 25 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., the Friends of Lincoln Park will be partnering with National Park Service (NPS) to do some fix-up in the park for National Public Lands Day.

Established in 1994 and held annually on the fourth Saturday in September, National Public Lands Day is traditionally the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort. It celebrates the connection between people and green space in their community, inspires environmental stewardship, and encourages use of open space for education, recreation, and health benefits. This year, National Public Lands Day falls on Sept. 25, 2021.
Come out to Lincoln Park to do a little cleaning, some weeding, painting the kiosks (if weather permits) and replacing of the old bubble in the Southeast playground structure. Plus, you’ll meet and hang out with your neighbors!
Volunteers are encouraged to come on out even if sign up slots are filled. Families can join in to help clean up the playgrounds.
