Are you looking for ways to get involved in the community?
SCP+R has a variety of opportunities for volunteers ranging from working in our gardens and helping at events to coaching youth sports teams and teaching wilderness skills.
We even have opportunities for you to adopt your very own park/trail or to create your own projects based on your passions/the needs that you see in the community.
Adopt-a-Park & Adopt-a-Trail Information
2020 has taught us as a community to appreciate our outdoor resources more than ever, including the over 100 parks and trails available in Shawnee County. Shawnee County Parks + Rec provides an Adopt-A-Park/Trail program that encourages this rekindled appreciation for the parks and trails!
What does it mean to adopt a park or trail?
This program encourages us to help the community enjoy our parks and trails through beautification activities and monthly debris pick up.
What do you gain from adopting a park or trail?
By adopting a park or trail, we can work together to promote a sense of pride and appreciation of our parks and resources. This also provides the perfect excuse to get outside!
Who can adopt a park or trail?
Anyone! Student groups. Neighborhood Associations. Church groups. Businesses looking for community engagement opportunities. Families looking to beautify their favorite parks or trails. We happily partner with anyone who is excited to partner with us!
