July is "Parks Make Life Better" Month!

The Parks, Recreation and Waterfront Department is sponsoring a community volunteer opportunity for our "Parks Make Life Better" event to be held in parks in South Berkeley on Saturday, July 20, 2013.  There are opportunities for volunteers to work with the City's parks maintenance staff to plant trees and spruce up parks south of University Avenue and west of Telegraph Avenue. 

Crews and volunteers will meet at San Pablo Park on July 20th at 8:00 am.  The cleanup will be followed by a BBQ lunch for volunteers (12:00 noon -1:00 pm) and a parks carnival that includes tree climbing and landscape maintenance demonstrations in San Pablo Park from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.  Interested volunteers or project ideas can be submitted to Parks staff at (510) 981-6660 by Friday, July 12, 2013.  See attached flyer.
