Spring Work Party and Poop-a-poo-looza

We are planning a Poop-a-poo-looza and work-party to do spring-time cleanup maintenance on the park – On Saturday, April 27, from 8 till 12.

(The work party will happen in any weather less than a downpour.)

Please respond on the volunteer page or contact Will via email or on Facebook if you are interested in helping. (Do note, this does qualify as volunteer hours for high school students and the requirements for the National Honor Society.)

The park will be CLOSED for normal usage during this work-party, but volunteers can bring their dogs to hang out in the training area while we humans make the park nice for them (and us).  [One human will be asked to keep watch on the dogs while the others work – with trade-offs for breaks.]

Things that needs to get done:

  • Rake and pick up leaves out of the corners
  • Rake wood chips off of path and back onto slope
  • Mulch the area around the dog park sign and replant flowers in the garden there
  • Turn up and re-mulch the pee-circles
  • Clean up the digging strip on the small-dog side
  • Trim brush and stumps in the Training Area
  • General clean up of trash in the parking lot, along park borders and inside park.
  • Plant dog-safe plants and flowers in the planters
  • Move planters back to their spots around the park
  • Move the large tires into the park
  • Move the small tires to the small-dog side
  • Dig the large tires into the ground
  • Clear out brush and roots from the front of the park
  • Move the parking blocks back into place
  • Fence off, rototil, place hex-grids and seed a section of the park for grass
  • Other things that will occur to us between now and the workday

Things we need people to donate, to help do this:

  • Large rocks to put in the park (the larger, the better)
  • Flowering plants for the planters and around the sign
  • Mulch for around the sign
  • Planting gravel for the planters
  • Planter soil for the planters

Things we need people to bring, to help do this:

  • shovels, leaf and lawn rakes
  • chainsaw
  • hedge trimmer
