Volunteer opportunities with the city

Looking for a way to stay busy and give back to the community? Below are two easy, independent activities that can be done with social distancing. For more information, contact Laura Smith at lsmith@stlouispark.org.

Pick up the Park

Help beautify St. Louis Park by picking up litter and debris from a local park or street! This is a great activity for individuals and groups of all ages and can be done on your own time. Use your own bags and gloves, and volunteers can leave their bags in the trash cans located at each park. If bags are too large for trash cans, contact Laura Smith at lsmith@stlouispark.org. Volunteers are invited to post their pictures on social media and tag the City of St Louis Park with #Pickupthepark!

Adopt-a-Drain program

Help us protect our lakes, streams and wetlands by adopting a storm drain and keeping it clear of leaves, trash and other debris. The simple act of sweeping up around a storm drain helps protect local lakes and rivers by preventing pollution from entering our shared waterways.

To adopt a storm drain, visit Adopt-a-Drain.org. Simply create an account with your name and address to claim your storm drain. Once you’ve signed up, Adopt-a-Storm-Drain will send you tips on how to clean up safely.

With more than 300,000 storm drains in the metro area, everyone’s help is important in making an impact! Learn more on Clean Water Minnesota's website.
