You could climb Mount Everest twice and still not cover the amount of trail that volunteers maintained last year. The amount of litter they removed from parks would overflow 14 garbage trucks and it would take more than 10,500 wheelbarrows to hold all the weeds. In total, volunteers contributed 20,643 hours at 588 events in 105 locations throughout the Parks and Open Space system in 2017, a gift to our community valued at $498,322. Check out our 2017 highlight reel to read just some of the stories that shaped the past year.
