The Friends of Laurelhurst Park (FLP) work parties occur from March through October on the second Wednesday of each month from 9 am to noon. Activities include pruning, mulching, removing invasive species and performing other tasks to make the park healthier, safer and more inviting. Tools, gloves and water are provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own favorite tools.

The first work party occurs on Wednesday March 8, 9 am to noon. It is helpful to contact Peggy Glasscock or Barry Kast in advance to assure sufficient support will be available.

FLP is considering adding additional work party dates on weekends or vacation days to enable potential volunteers who cannot attend on regularly scheduled days because of employment conflicts. Other initiatives will be under discussion at the annual FLP planning meeting on March 1.

We look forward to a productive and fun season of Laurelhurst Park maintenance and beautification.
