Hazel Valley Park Weeding and Planting

October 28, 2023 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm

During our event at Hazel Valley Park, we’ll be removing non-native weeds, planting, and creating opportunities to talk about the role that people play in protecting our planet’s natural resources and building community with one another. No experience necessary.

The Basics

Registration is required. We will teach you everything you need to know about tool use, safety, forest health, and the importance of the work you will be doing. No experience necessary, just come ready to learn something new!

For your safety and comfort please bring:

  • Clothing that can get dirty (because it will!)
  • Long pants and long sleeves (helps protect against prickly plants)
  • Sturdy shoes that can handle some mud (closed-toed shoes are required)
  • Rain gear and warm layers -OR- sun protection (check the weather!)
  • Sack lunch and snacks (to refuel)
  • Full water bottle (we will have a jug on-site for refills)

What will volunteers be doing at the event?

While the exact tasks can vary, our projects focus on improving the forests and parks in our local cities. Healthy and thriving forests are vital to our community because they absorb and filter rainwater, produce clean oxygen, provide living spaces for wildlife, and create a place for people to connect with the outdoors.

In order to help create healthy forests, the work can include:​​​​

  • Removing weeds
  • Maintaining areas where these weeds have been removed (weeding or spreading mulch)
  • Planting trees and shrubs during the rainy season (often ~Oct.-Feb.)

Youth Policy

Youth under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All volunteers between the ages of 14 and 17 who are not with a parent or guardian must submit a digital Youth Waiver before the day of the event.

The digital waiver process is first initiated when the youth participant registers online. After the youth participant enters parent/guardian details, the digital waiver will be sent to the parent/guardian for two-part authentication.
