(DES MOINES) The 2012 Spring Park Blitz is looking for volunteers to lend a hand in 12 of Iowa’s state parks on April 27 and 28. This event is a great opportunity for individuals and groups to help prepare parks for the busy summer season.
Many parks do not currently have the resources for extensive upkeep, so this event provides the extra help they need to beautify parks for summer use. Volunteers will collaborate with Department of Natural Resources AmeriCorps members on a variety of tasks to clean and ready parks for campers and other summer activities. Tasks will include trail clean-up, collecting litter, vine clearing, and more.
Volunteers are needed at Lake Anita State Park from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 28th. Details for other parks across the state can be found online at iowadnr.gov.
