Volunteering in Spring
April is a time when everyone’s thoughts turn to spring.
Here at the Greenway Conservancy, it is also a time when we get a lot of eager volunteers ready to get outside and lend their hands!
Not only is April National Garden Month, it is also contains National Volunteer Week, National Environmental Education Week, Earth Day and Arbor Day.
This month, 150 volunteers donated over 400 hours working on spring cleanups, raking, edging, pruning, weeding, and litter pick-up, as well as tasks in our office including stuffing envelopes and creating sign design ideas. This was a tremendous help and our volunteers were enthusiastic and motivated, even through April’s fickle weather!
The Greenway Conservancy hired its first full-time Volunteer Coordinator in January and is expanding volunteer opportunities. Visit our website or email [email protected] to find out more!
