Adopt-A-Park Program Seeks Volunteer Teams

Pinellas County Parks and Conservation Resources is looking to recruit groups of eight or more participants to adopt a county park, and perform at least four park-related service projects a year. The groups would commit to a minimum of three volunteer hours per person per project. It's a great way for area businesses or civic groups to take ownership of a Pinellas County park!

Adopt-A-Park service projects might include spreading mulch, trimming plant beds, clearing along trails and boardwalks, painting picnic tables, removing litter from waterway areas or helping to control invasive plants species. A group of Boy Scouts has already committed to gleaning fruit from the groves in Eagle Lake Park to give to area food banks and homeless shelters.

When a group completes two of their four projects, its name will be displayed on a plaque posted at the entrance to the specific park, so the group gets credit for a job well done. For more information, visit this link:
