People who enjoy Laurelhurst Park can join other volunteers to keep it a beautiful and appealing place to spend time. A work party will be removing debris, weeding and pruning as necessary at 9 a.m. Aug. 9, meeting at the park’s north entrance on Southeast Ankeny Street.
After signing in, volunteers will hear a description of the day’s work from Park Bureau staff members who will have a design, tools and other needed materials. Volunteers should dress for working with plant material and soil. They may bring favorite gloves and hand pruners.
Other work parties are scheduled for Sept. 13 and Oct. 11.
