"Days of Service" seeking volunteers to clean up state parks

Published On: Sep 16 2013 04:42:49 AM CDT

If you're interested in spending time in natural preserves or state parks, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation is looking for you.  The department needs volunteers as part of its "Days to Serve" initiative.  It takes place Wednesday through September 28th in four natural preserves and all 36 state parks.

Volunteers will participate in service projects.  Special programs, shoreline, trail and park cleanups give volunteers opportunities to enjoy the outdoors while also giving back.

You can find a complete list of events in Virginia state parks on the Virginia State Parks calendar page http://go.usa.gov/D8zk.
