Park Renewal Day – Register a Team, Have Fun & Win Prizes!

The Fourth Annual Park Renewal Day is coming up on Saturday November 12 at Dearborn Park. Not only do you have an opportunity to help keep the park clear but you might win some major cash! Founded in 2008, Park Renewal Day helps to raise awareness about invaasive planats and bring the community together to rejuvenate the shared green space.

Did you know that invasive plant species like Chinese privet and English ivy are taking over our community parks by strangling and crowding out native plants?

Renewal Design-Build, along with DeKalb County Parks, DeKalb County Greenspace, and the City of Decatur, call on neighbors like you to help save our precious green spaces. Teammates work together to clear their plots of invasive species and debris, competing against other teams.

Teams compete for prize money by uprooting invasive plants in one of our local community parks. Officials from DeKalb County and the City of Decatur will judge the quality and quantity of work done to each group’s designated work space.

Did I mention that there will be food and music? Sounds like a great way to have fun while giving back to the community.
