Pitch In For Parks

Pierce County Parks in partnership with McLendon Hardware proudly present “Pitch in for Parks” a great volunteer based opportunity to pitch in and help the community.

Come out for one or all of our Pitch in for Parks events

We supply the tools, water and a snack – you bring the enthusiasm to make a big difference in our parks, open spaces and trails. We invite you to come “rain or shine”. Remember dress appropriately for weather conditions, bring gloves and the willingness to get dirty for this community service activity open to all ages (ages 14 and under with guardian) and abilities.  

Volunteers are welcome to Pitch In for an hour or two or the entire time.

Parks Appreciation Day is a multi-agency day of volunteerism that runs from 9:00 am to noon, and this year, we’ll be working in Parkland Prairie in celebration of a full year of being officially opened. Time for spring cleaning the prairie! Walk the trails, enjoy the wildflowers, say "hi" to the bumblebees, and join us in weeding and tidying up the flowerbeds in the display garden.

Mayfair Playfield (map)

It’s time to mulch! Volunteers will spread mulch around newly planted trees and plants so that they’re nice and protected from the coming summer heat. While you’re there, take a look at (and play on!) the play structure that was built using volunteer love and labor.

Did you know that English ivy is classified as a Class C noxious weed in Washington? That means it's a widespread problem in our state. Join us at the "Spot of Shade" along the Grandview Trail, and we'll do our part to clear out the invasive ivy and allow our native plants to grow and thrive.
