Civic Center SPARKLES | Public Volunteer Day
August 29, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
Mark your calendars for a special volunteer day at Civic Center Park, in the heart of Denver! In addition to light park clean-up, we will spend the bulk of our time maintaining and harvesting vegetable beds from the Grow Local vegetable beds at Civic Center Park. Please sign up using the form below.
Volunteer Day Details
We are pleased to offer free parking, t-shirts, snacks and water; more information can be found below.
Our volunteer work is going to involve planting flowers and performing other various horticultural maintenance.
Here are some details to prepare for your volunteer day:
Forms – We have both a waiver and a volunteer information form for each person in the park. The waiver covers both the City of Denver and the Conservancy. Volunteers can either fill out forms the day of the volunteer effort or fill them out online beforehand below. Volunteers must complete these forms before they can volunteer.
Food and Drinks – The Conservancy will provide a light breakfast, snacks, and bottled water for all volunteers. Volunteers are welcomed to bring any additional drinks or snacks they want.
T-Shirts – We will have t-shirts for all volunteers on site. Volunteers may want to wear something light so that they can put the t-shirt on over the top. Please indicate your t-shirt size on the information form.
Parking – We are pleased to offer free parking in the Denver Post parking lot. Volunteers will be able to park by entering at the Broadway or the Cleveland entrances. Each volunteer vehicle will need to pull a ticket from the kiosk. The Conservancy will provide you with sticker validations that you will need to place on the back of each parking ticket. Please do not to park in any management, reserved or tandem parking spaces. Upon exiting the garage, be sure to scan the ticket first, then the validation on the back of the ticket.
Tools and Gloves – The City of Denver and the Conservancy will provide all tools needed for the volunteer day. If you would prefer not to share gloves, please bring your own.
