Celebrate Earth Day by Volunteering at Brookhaven Park!

Brookhaven Park Conservancy has partnered with PARC Brookhaven to host a volunteer work day in the Park to celebrate Earth Day. Please join us if you can!

Now that the sheep have cleared many overgrown areas in the Park, we are seeing all kinds of accumulated trash and want to clean it up before the areas grow back. We also want to paint the older park benches.

Sound like fun? Join us at 10am on Saturday, April 23, at the large picnic pavilion to register, sign a liability waiver, and get assigned to a paint or clean up team. We will provide the painting equipment and trash bags and the City is providing the paint. Please wear clothes appropriate to go into the ungroomed areas of the Park (jeans recommended), including closed toe shoes.

We are pleased to announce that our great volunteer partners at Oglethorpe University will be joining us to help out and celebrate Earth Day.

This is is one of five events that PARC Brookhaven is coordinating with Brookhaven’s conservancies and Friends groups. That same morning, clean up activities will take place in Blackburn Park, Ashford Park, and Murphey Candler Park. In fact, Murphey Candler Conservancy is hosting a food trunk event the night before, April 22, at its Park to celebrate Earth Day. Briarwood will kick off the Earth Day week of activities on April 16 by planting three raised beds and cleaning up its Community Garden.

So that we can plan our rental equipment and teams, please email us through the “contact us” page of our website¬†to let us know if you plan to join us or have any questions. We look forward to spring cleaning in the Park with you!
