4/22/2017 | Cuivre River State Park | Troy, MO
Cuivre River State Park will host our second annual Camp Sherwood Beautification Day to celebrate National Volunteer Week. National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. Camp Sherwood has been a part of the Troy community for more than 70 years and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Generations of children have made memories in camp, and several thousand people still enjoy the camp today. This event will also serve as our first big volunteer project for 2017. Anyone interested in joining the volunteer program at the park are encouraged to attend. It also happens to be Earth Day, and some activities will focus on bettering the habitat around the camp.
During the event, volunteers will assist staff with a variety of camp beautification projects that will spruce up the camp for our visitors. Some projects include painting the historic buildings, cleaning buildings, bush honeysuckle removal, spreading gravel on the trails, and more! Volunteers can stay for as little or as long as you would like. Several Scout groups will be joining us and they are welcome, we just ask that Scouts have plenty of adult helpers. We ask that all volunteers call the park office to sign up; this helps us to have enough supplies for everyone. There are projects for volunteers of all ages! For more information or to register, call the park office at 636-528-7247.
Event times: 9 a.m. - Noon
