Meet new friends and connect with old friends during a morning in an Olivette park! No experience required!
Olivette is fortunate to have over 120 acres of parks and open space. Caring for this treasure requires lots of love and time. Volunteers clear invasives, plant new plants, assist with the prairie seeding and learn from each other— all while having a great time outdoors!
The City provides all plant material and some tools; volunteers should dress in layers and wear sturdy close-toed shoes and gloves. If you have a favorite weeding tool or loppers, bring them along.
Each work session is two hours; park locations and start times vary. Sign-up for the email alerts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 314.991.1249
