Below are the city volunteer opportunities that will get you outdoors in nature! Please go to the city's calendar for times and locations of each event.
Help Support the City’s Battery Recycling Program
The City is looking for volunteers to help with our battery recycling program. This is a great opportunity for those passionate about sustainability and looking for service hours.
The opportunity involves working with the City’s Solid Waste Coordinator to support logistics tasks related to the program. It is a great opportunity to learn how the recycling industry works.
Join in the fun to make the city beautiful! In the spring and fall, volunteers work together to clean up the city. Volunteers meet at the Community Center, are organized into teams, and assigned to work areas throughout the city. City staff distributes trash pickers, trash bags, recycling bags, gloves, and reflective vests. Perfect for community groups (Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc.), church groups, families, or individuals.
