The public is invited to participate in a work day from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 12 at Union Plaza, 21st and "Q" streets, or Sherman Field, 1st and South streets. Work will focus on cutting back ornamental grasses, raking leaves, mulching and routine landscape bed cleanup. The groups will meet at each park for training prior to beginning landscaping work. The event is the second in the V.I.P. (Volunteer in Parks) Saturday series for 2016, and both current and new volunteers are welcome.
