|The Amazing Eau Claire
The Community Services Department is organizing the “Amazing Eau Claire Clean-Up” for Saturday, April 21, 2018. This event sends volunteers to locations throughout the city including community parks, neighborhood playgrounds, picnic areas, and recreational trails, where they clean the areas and prepare flowerbeds. Following the clean up, volunteers are invited to Boyd Park for food and prizes. The Amazing Eau Claire Clean-up is a great opportunity for people to work together and make a difference in our community. For more information contact the Parks Maintenance Office at 715-839-5039.
Application deadline: April 13, 2018
Narrative & Schedule of Events
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.
Adopt a Park, Playground, Trail or Boulevard
Park Pride Program
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.
Keep Eau Claire Beautiful
Operation Blanket Eau Claire
Operation Blanket Eau Claire is looking for volunteers to create blankets - knitted, crocheted, fleece or quilted. These blankets will be distributed to several non-profit agencies who help people in need in our community. These blankets will be distributed on Make A Difference Day Eau Claire scheduled for October 28, 2017.
Make A Difference Day
On October 28, 2017, at Boyd Parks from 9am-12pm, the City of Eau Claire will join other communities in the United States for Make A Difference Day. This national event is the largest national day of community service. We will have several projects for that day, including getting our city parks and streets cleaned up for winter.
The 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.
