These cleanup and beautification projects are a great way for individuals, families and organizations to get involved.  

For those who have created their own project, please report them here. 

Earth Day

April 22, 2021

9 am to 12 pm

We are continuing National Volunteer Week by planting trees in MacArthur Park in order to reduce the noise and pollution from the traffic on I-630.  Join us on the west side of the dog park and bring gloves and a water bottle to enjoy Central Arkansas Water's free flowing water.  We like "Rocky" the movie not the terrain, so the holes will be pre-dug.

Sign up HERE.
