The City’s 19th annual community park improvement and clean-up event returns on Saturday, April 27, 8 am-noon. On Wilsonville Environmental Resource Keepers (W.E.R.K.) Day, volunteers join City employees to complete projects that prepare City parks for the busy summer season. Past projects have included painting soccer goals, placing bark chips on trails, rebuilding eroded trails, removing invasive species, and sanding and painting picnic tables.
“The City relies on the efforts of our W.E.R.K. Day crew to get our parks in shape for summer,” said Brian Stevenson, Parks & Recreation Program Manager. “We appreciate the families, friends and co-workers who join us each year for a fun morning doing meaningful work together.”
W.E.R.K. Day takes place rain or shine; anyone eight and older is welcome to participate. Long pants, work gloves, closed-toe shoes, water bottles and sunscreen are recommended.
Volunteers check in and receive a free omelet breakfast, 8-9 am at the Wilsonville Community Center, complements of Wilsonville Rotary.
An adult must accompany volunteers under 18. To register, visit WilsonvilleParksandRec.com/WERKday.
