National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort. County staff will work with volunteers to improve and enhance the park by weeding, pruning and removing invasive plants. Volunteers are encouraged to bring hand pruners, work gloves, hat, sunglasses, water, bug spray and sunscreen. Volunteers should also wear closed-toe, closed-heel shoes.
