Caddo Clean Parks is our newest volunteer opportunity in partnership with Shreveport Green. We believe that when our citizens volunteer in our parks, they take a more personal interest in keeping them clean and beautiful.
Three ways you can contribute to the Caddo Clean Parks Campaign:
- PICK UP Please do not litter and make sure to clean your area after each park visit. You can also help by picking up litter in the park that other people may have left and by spreading the message of keeping our parks clean. It is also important to pick up after your pets.
- EVALUATE Input from our citizens and visitors is an important part of maintaining our parks. If you see inadequate conditions in any of our parks or greenspaces, please use this form to tell us about your concerns.
- VOLUNTEER Individuals, non-profit organizations or groups of individuals can volunteer and complete park rehabilitation projects. These projects include clean up days in parks, planting trees, maintaining community gardens and more. Sign up here for the next event or even let us help you create your own Caddo Clean Parks event.
