Pitch In For Parks Kick Off Event - Saturday, March 7, 2015
Pierce County’s first “Pitch in for Parks” event was held on Saturday, March 7 and was a great success! Over 50 volunteers donated 137 hours of time and energy to cleaning up Bresemann Forest. Large piles of blackberries and English ivy were removed. Tools, gloves and other supplies for the program were donated by McLendon Hardware and will be used each month at a different park site as a part of the new volunteer coordination and outreach
One volunteer wrote on volunteermatch.org: "Great turnout… our 4 year old son thought trash duty was the best. We had a great time. The best part was that our son really enjoyed being able to help the animals of the forest. Great day. I look forward to working with all of you again in the future."
