Volunteer Workday

Village Creek State Park
How would you like to spend a couple of hours, or more, having fun, working outside, in a beautiful state park, with other nature lovers and truly making a difference? On the first Saturday of every month, we are inviting anyone who has an hour, or two, or more that they can volunteer, to come lend a hand to make Village Creek State Park better for everyone. Each month we do something different to improve the park. Bring your family and invite your friends. This is also a great way to get those Community Service hours you need for your school, club, work or other orgainization.
