Volunteers

Paradise Creek Nature Park offers a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Neary 2,000 adults and children have helped remove invasive plants, planted native trees, weeded garden beds, removed trash from the trails and wetland, and helped maintain education zones throughout the park. See below for volunteer dates and times or contact Robin Dunbar to schedule a private event for groups of 10 or more.

Programs will be canceled in the event of foul weather: rain, storms, snow, temperatures above 90F or below 40F. Please register in advance so we can notify you directly of any changes.

Clean The Bay Day

Join us for the 30th Annual Clean the Bay Day! We will be removing trash & debris from the forest, trails, roadside, and wetlands of Paradise Creek Nature Park.

Each year, on the first Saturday of June, thousands of Virginians simultaneously descend on the rivers, streams, and beaches of the Chesapeake Bay watershed to remove harmful litter and debris. Thirty years strong, Clean the Bay Day is a true Virginian tradition and an annual opportunity for families, military installations, businesses, clubs, civic or church groups to give back to local waterways.

Limited amount of gloves are available - please bring your own gloves if possible. Dress to work outside and wear close-toed shoes.

**Meet at 8:30am on-site to register and receive your trash bags and grabbers.**

Date: Saturday, June 2nd

Time: 8:30am - 11:30am

No advanced registration necessary - register on site
