Spring is here and summer is on the way

You know your children will want to play

“Let’s go to Frog Park” is what they’ll say

That’s why we need your help on Earth Day!

Community members and children of all ages are invited to help us keep our local Frog Park and the Rockridge Temescal Greenbelt safe and clean. Earth Day is a great time to get your family together and talk about the importance of helping the community and protecting natural places and open spaces — especially those in our backyard.

Frog is teaming up with the DMV Neighbors Association for this annual cleanup. Tasks we’ll need help with include:

  • Raking, weeding, pruning and collecting trash along the creek bed (getting ready for the water to flow again)
  • Removing trash, raking and turning fibar (the “wood chips”), cleaning sand, and sweeping at Big Frog Park
  • Clearing debris and redwood duff in the pond bed
  • Staffing the sign-in tables and helping with set-up (great way to meet neighbors)

Bring your work gloves or we will provide.
