    We adopted a park! If you're looking for a great way to give back to your community and enjoy some time outside, please join us for our first park cleanup at Indian Bend Wash. Volunteers should be prepared with sunglasses and/or hat, sunscreen, clothed toe shoes, long pants, and water. We will also provide additional water, snacks, and copies of waivers for each volunteer to sign.

    The cleanup will primarily consist of trash pick up throughout the park, plant removal and trimming overgrown brush.
