The public is invited to participate in a Union Plaza work day from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, August 15. The group will meet at the Jayne Snyder Trail Center, 250 N. 21st St., for training.
The event kicks off the Parks and Recreation Department's new program for volunteers, who will meet one Saturday a month at a different park location.
To register, send an email to ParksVolunteers@lincoln.ne.gov. New volunteers are asked to fill out a form and bring it to the event on August 15 or submit it with their registration. The form is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov (click on "volunteer," then download application from list on the right).
