Impact the Rock

A Day of Unity and Service

We believe Little Rock can become even more special and unified through community engagement.  So, meet fellow Little Rockers on November 16th from 9 am to 12 pm while beautifying our streets, parks, neighborhoods and zoo.  You, your group, your family or your business has four ways to participate. Three of the ways are listed below.  The fourth way is for our adopters of parks, trails, flowerbeds and streets who we encourage to work in their adopted area that day.

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

On these projects we could use the help of businesses or groups with access to equipment such as mowers, bush hogs and weed eaters. 

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




Animal Village – Do you have a soft spot for our animal friends?  Put a smile on your face and a song in their heart by giving some love to our fur (or maybe not fur) babies. 

Parks and Recreation - From adopting a park to coaching a sports team to patrolling a park as a park ranger, we provide a wide-range of opportunities for a volunteer to create and be part of the community he/she envisions. Apply from the convenience of your couch, here.

Public Works - The Adopt-A-Street program enables neighborhoods, businesses or individuals to keep our community clean.  

Zoo – Are you a little on the wild side?  Then building community through our Little Rock Zoo might be just what you've been looking for. Help with the animals, the landscaping or special events.
