Green Up Day
April 13, 2019
In past years, Green-Up Day has focused solely on Burnet Woods. While Burnet Woods is a beautiful place that continues to benefit from community support, in 2014 the Center for Community Engagement and the Cincinnati Parks began sharing 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.
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.
If you're using Green-Up Day to fulfill a Cincinnatus or UC Global Scholarship service requirement, note that you will need to log your hours for approval through volunteer.uc.edu
