On September 22nd, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is hosting the second annual statewide volunteer day at state parks. Over 40 state parks across the state will have projects ready for volunteers. Projects include picking up litter, painting, clearing trails, removing trees, planting trees, and building picnic tables.
People of all ages are encouraged to participate. The DNR is expecting 1,000 volunteers. In addition to the projects, many of the parks have activates to enjoy after the work is finished! Volunteers are encouraged to share their pictures throughout the day on social media using #iowastateparks.
