Earth Day Celebration
  • Come volunteer in the Saco Community and celebrate Earth Day! We are looking for volunteers who would like to help us clean up and prepare the local parks for spring & summer! Duties will include: trash pick-up, weeding, raking etc.
  • We will be looking for volunteers to help us at Pepperell Park, Jubilee Park, The River Walk Trail, Cascade Falls, Haley Park and Horton Woods. The event will start with gathering all of the volunteers at the Saco Community Center to get organized into groups, check-in, and to pick up your t-shirts & supplies! After a welcome announcement and group picture, the groups will disperse to the different locations for the clean-up!
  • Every volunteer who registers by April 3rd, 2020, will receive an organic cotton t-shirt with the Saco Earth Day Logo that is featured above! We encourage everyone who participated in 2019 to wear their shirt from last year. (They are the same design). Volunteers must show up for the clean-up event to receive their shirt. All volunteers will also be entered into a raffle to win prizes such as local gift cards and more!
