Leave-A-Mark: Adopt-a-Park!



Want a great project for your group or organization? Well, here’s your chance to lend a hand for a green cause. The Wyoming Parks & Recreation’s Adopt-a-Park program offers a great opportunity for individuals or groups to get involved in their community and neighborhoods, working to make Wyoming a more attractive, vibrant, healthy and safe place to live.


With 700 acres of park land, miles of walking and bike trails, over 120 restrooms, playgrounds and recreational facilities, Adopt-a-Park volunteers make a difference through litter pick-ups, flower planting, garden maintenance and much more.


Well-maintained green spaces improve the quality of life for our community — keeping property values high, ensuring safe play environments for children, maintaining wildlife habitat and promoting community health and wellness.


Any community-based group willing to make a one-time or ongoing volunteer commitment through the year is welcome. Civic associations, schools, neighborhoods, churches, military, scouts or other groups that want to help clean up, control litter and beautify their community can adopt a park, preserve or green space.


All Adopt-a-Park groups receive a Certificate of Appreciation. Signage identifying your organization as an Adopt-a-Park volunteer group is available to those who are willing to make a one-year commitment to a particular park, preserve or green space.


Your group’s sign will be placed in an appropriate area of the park in recognition of your efforts.
