Turkey Creek Cleanup
The Turkey Creek cleanup occurs in the fall. The Department will provide trash bags and refreshments. Volunteers are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather and environment and to bring their own work gloves.
Neighborhood Services keeps an eye out for homes that could use assistance with volunteer painting and minor exterior/yard maintenance. In the event we identify a property who's owner will accept volunteer help, the department supplies paint and painting supplies and issues a call for volunteers to help apply paint to the property.
