Volunteers Needed for State Park Spring Clean-up

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) needs volunteers to help with state park spring cleaning. Throughout April and May, the DNR will be hosting volunteer days at parks around the state. Activities include picking up litter, planting trees and plants, painting, and clearing trails. Volunteers are asked to dress for the weather and bring gloves.

Decreased funding to the DNR in recent years has left parks with fewer maintenance workers. Volunteers at these spring cleanup days are critical to ensuring parks remain open for the public to enjoy.
