The Amazing Eau Claire Clean-Up

The 11th Annual “The Amazing Eau Claire Clean-Up" has been scheduled for Saturday, April 20, 2019 from 9:00am-12:00pm.  The event, organized by Eau Claire Parks, Recreation, and Forestry, sends volunteers at 9:00am to assigned locations throughout the city including community parks, neighborhood playgrounds, picnic areas, recreational trails, and downtown to pick up litter.   Following the clean-up, volunteers are invited to Boyd Park at 11:00am for lunch, recognition, and prizes.  The Amazing Eau Claire Clean-up is a great opportunity for people to work together and make a difference in our community.  Registration Form (available January 1, 2019)

Gather Round the Gardens 
Groups can adopt a public flower garden. The City will provide the materials. The group will plant and maintain the bed for one year. The City will install a sign at the site recognizing the group. These projects require a few hours of time each month during the spring and summer to plant flowers, pull weeds and mulch beds. This can be a great opportunity to meet other gardening enthusiasts, learn more about plant care, gain experience in garden design and plant selection, and beautify our community.   

Contact Information 
If you are interested in volunteering for any of these opportunities or need additional information, contact Carrie Ottum at 715-839-5032 or carrie.ottum@eauclairewi.gov

Volunteer Manual

 

Keep Eau Claire Beautiful 

Theflowers_2012_09_13_011 Community Services Department is looking for volunteers to help maintain public flower gardens and assist in keeping our parks clean. The focus is citywide beautification and promoting community pride through volunteerism.

Root for the Trees 
Every time you plant a tree, you help improve our environment. Each tree planted can have a positive impact on our city. Trees shade our neighborhoods, capture particulate air pollution and store carbons from emissions. Help beautify Eau Claire and encourage your organization to volunteer for this project.

ADOPT A PARK, PLAYGROUND, TRAIL OR BOULEVARD  
Groups and individuals can adopt a public area to help maintain. This could be ongoing throughout the year or a one-time event. This would be a great opportunity for Scout Groups, Civil Groups, Church Groups and School Groups.
