Current Volunteer Opportunities:

Adopt a Park!
Adopt a Park 1
Adopt a Park programs have operated successfully in communities throughout the Country by assisting Parks and Recreation departments of all sizes in the development and ongoing maintenance of their parks.  The majority of these programs involve volunteer groups or individuals engaging in a variety of tasks ranging from litter patrol to painting and weeding.  This type of program not only improves the quality and aesthetics of the park system, but also creates a feeling of public ownership and pride.  See the Adopt a Park brochure for more information:  Adopt a Park Brochure

Adopt a Street!
Adopt a Street
The Adopt-A-Street program empowers volunteer groups to keep their neighborhoods litter-free one street at a time.  Adopt-A-Street is a collaboration between the City of Wenatchee and volunteer groups.  Residents volunteer to remove litter from an adopted street in their city four times a year for two years.  The City of Wenatchee provides organizational help, cleanup supplies, free disposal, and Adopt-A-Street signs with the name of the group on them.  See the Adopt-A-Street brochure for more information:  Adopt a Street Brochure
