Green-Up Day

April 19, 2014, 8:45a - 1:00p

In year's past, Green-Up Day has focused solely on Burnet Woods. While Burnet Woods is a beautiful place that needs community support to reach its full potential; for the first time in 2014 we're going to share the Green-Up Day love with other parks surrounding the University of Cincinnati's Uptown Campus.

The goal of Green-Up Day is to beautify and maintain our precious public green-spaces so the entire community can fully enjoy them in their seasons of highest use. Public parks are a simple but profoundly important component of a community's quality of life, they are a place where people from all backgrounds come together to connect with nature, recreate, and build stronger communities.

The Parks

Each project site is at or near volunteer capacity, to check whehter or not there are any available volunteer slots, follow the links below. Each of the other parks are also within walking distance of campus, so check them out!

What to expect:

  • Please bring a pair of work gloves to the event if you can. All other tools will be provided.
  • Event is rain or shine, so wear clothes that can get dirty and sturdy shoes appropriate for working in brush and mud.
  • Volunteer opportunities will consist of mulching the park, honeysuckle/invasive species removal, grounds beautification, and any other special projects in need of attention.
