Pick a Park, Give a Day, and Make a Difference at DCR’s 9th Annual Park Serve Day

Department of Conservation & RecreationThe Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) encourages residents to lend a hand at state parks and beaches across the Commonwealth this Saturday, April 25, 2015 for the agency’s Annual Park Serve Day. Park Serve Day is a statewide day of volunteer service where volunteers partner with staff from DCR to get Massachusetts parks and beaches ready for summer by cleaning coastlines, clearing trails, planting flowers, painting picnic tables, mowing, weeding and picking up litter.

“This effort is a true collaboration, in partnership with residents, friends groups and local officials, which will benefit the tens of thousands of visitors heading to DCR parks this season,” said DCR Commissioner Jack Murray. “We all have a role to play in preserving and enhancing our forests and parks. Park Serve Day provides an opportunity for residents to experience our great resources first-hand and spread the word about what the Commonwealth has to offer.”
