Each year during Earth Week, DCR invites volunteers to Massachusetts parks, forests, and beaches to help prepare for the busy spring and summer recreation season. Park Serve Day is an opportunity for participants to help tend to their favorite state park by getting involved in a clean-up, painting, or other restorative projects for one day. Last year, over 3,400 volunteers worked 4,100 hours at 28 DCR facilities statewide. Volunteers collected 1642 bags of trash measuring almost 68 tons.
We are excited to announce that this year, over 50 parks across the Commonwealth are participating in Park Serve Day on April 22, 2023. These events do much more than just prepare the parks for summer, they help create stewards of the land and remind people how important our shared open spaces are. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day!
