Pitch In For Parks

Pierce County Parks in partnership with McLendon Hardware proudly present “Pitch in for Parks” a great volunteer based opportunity to pitch in and help the community.

Come out for one or all of our Pitch in for Parks events

We supply the tools, water and a snack – you bring the enthusiasm to make a big difference in our parks, open spaces and trails. We invite you to come “rain or shine”. Remember dress appropriately for weather conditions, bring gloves and the willingness to get dirty for this community service activity open to all ages (ages 14 and under with guardian) and abilities.  

Volunteers are welcome to Pitch In for an hour or two or the entire time.
