Join us in supporting our local parks

Volunteers in Parks (VIP) Day is an opportunity for volunteer teams to roll up their sleeves and spend a summer day working together at one of five Seattle parks – Lower Woodland Park, Dr. Jose Rizal Park, Lincoln Park, and Katie Black’s Garden. The event is being organized by Seattle Parks Foundation in partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation, REI, EarthCorps, and Seneca Group. The first VIP Day is Friday, July 20, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Volunteer activities include planting trees, shrubs and flowers, cleaning up litter and debris, removing weeds and invasive vegetation, and painting and small building projects.

Following the VIP workday, join us for a volunteer appreciation party at Lake Union Park from 3 to 7 p.m. that will feature live bands, free clam chowder, food trucks, and plenty of fun activities.
