BLOOMINGTON – The Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department is looking for volunteers for events during the month of August.
During the first week of August, Mills Pool closes for the summer, but it remains open two more days exclusively for our canine friends.
Happy pups take a dip in the pool while their owners can interact with local businesses that cater to pets.
Approximately 10 volunteers are needed to help monitor the pool, as well as assist with dog check-in. Volunteers must be 16 years old and up.
The event will be held on Wednesday, August 4th, and Thursday, August 5.
On the first Saturday of each month, March through November, staff members lead a volunteer group to identify and properly remove invasive plants out of Bloomington parks and green spaces.
Approximately 12 volunteers are needed to help be a part of an important environmental effort. No prior experience is needed. Volunteers need to be 12 years old or older.
The event will be held Saturday, August 7th.
School starts August 3, but keep the summer fun alive at Slip ‘N Foam and dive down a 100-foot slip ‘n slide, followed by a sudsy romp in the foam pit.
Volunteers are needed to assist with event setup and teardown, as well as help supervise activity areas. Volunteers must be 16 years old or older. Six volunteers are needed per shift.
As a thank you, volunteers will have a chance to go down the slip ‘n slide before or after their shift.
The event will be held Saturday, August 7.
As the old saying goes, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Discover your treasure at the annual Junk in the Trunk.
Vendors sell unwanted household goods at this community garage sale outside of the Switchyard Park Pavilion.
Six volunteers are needed to assist with event setup and teardown, as well as general event support and providing vendor relief. Volunteers must be 16 years old or older.
The event will be held on Saturday, August 21.
Spend some time giving back by helping clear debris along riparian corridors at Lower Cascades Park. Officials will provide trash bags and gloves; you bring your enthusiasm and love of nature, and together we’ll keep Cascades Park’s waterways litter-free.
This is an excellent opportunity for volunteer groups as well as individuals.
Approximately 25 volunteers are needed and they must be 12 years old or older.
The event is on Saturday, August 21, 2021.
