Volunteers must register in advance either online here or by downloading the PDF and sending to Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation.

Everyone is welcome to join in the fun! We invite service clubs, social service agencies, faith-based groups, scouting troops, businesses, families, and individuals to come out for the day, work together on some beautification projects, and celebrate Auburn.

Individuals and groups can either choose to participate in a specific project or we can assign you to the project that is in need of the most volunteer support.

Volunteers will be asked to bring tools based on their volunteer assignment (determined once registered), gardening or work gloves. Participants are encouraged to wear t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, or other clothing that identifies their group.
