Volunteers in Parks (VIP)

With your help, we can keep City parks looking their best!

The Volunteers in the Parks program was created by the Parks & Recreation Department to enable community volunteers to participate in special park "clean up" projects throughout the year.

Open to people of all ages
This is a great community service opportunity for church groups, service organizations, clubs and individuals. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate, but youth participants under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Eligible students ages 15 years or older can earn community service hours for service groups or graduation required hours.  Unfortunately, court ordered hours cannot be accommodated in this program.

What is provided
City Staff are on hand to provide supervision, refreshments and plenty of appreciation for your support! We will establish, with each project, the scope of the work and will provide instruction as needed.

What to bring
Please wear sturdy shoes (no sandals), sun protection and work gloves are also recommended.  Students should bring their community service worksheets to earn credit hours. For some projects, volunteers will be asked to supply garden tools that are easily accessible. For those without tools, the tools needed will be provided on site.

Dates & locations
Saturday, April 14, 2012 - Alberhill Ranch Community Park, 28200 Lake Street, Lake Elsinore. Time is 9 a.m. to 12 noon and volunteers are asked to bring shovels. Check in at the picnic pavilion near the Boys & Girls Club.

How to sign up
To sign up for park clean ups, please call the city's Volunteer Coordinator at (951) 674-3124, ext 290. We will direct all volunteers to the location of the project and inform of any tools required. All volunteers are required to complete a Volunteer Application to participate.
