The city of Sacramento Partners in Parks Program allows volunteeres to adopt a palyground, playfield, landscape, garden, section of a large park, preserve or trail.  Program volunteers perform routine or special stewardship activities in theadopted areas.  Activities vary by season and include but are not limited to: gardeningn, weeding, pruning, planting, brush clearing, spreading mulch, litter and invasive plant removal, and playground or play field preservation or improvement.  Volunteers can also help land, coordinate or lead group volunteer activities or specialprojects, promote or recruit or the program or a specialevent, assist other partners in parks groups with stewardship activities or act as an extra set of “eyes onthe park”.

Adoption opportunities are available to individuals and groups in all areas of the city.  City of Sacramento Park Operations staff provides the training, tools and personal protective equipment needed for all adoptions, so no prior experience is needed – only the desire to learn and help.
