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.

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.

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.
