Wednesday Volunteers

City Green is Kicking Off our 2020 Volunteer Season on Earth Day! 

Wednesday April 22

Volunteer Kick Off Schedule

 

Can't attend the Volunteer Kick Off event? Volunteers are essential in helping us thrive – and we’d love an opportunity to work with you! Please sign up for a Volunteer Orientation*. Orientations are held the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, right at the start of the morning and afternoon volunteer sessions.
