PARKS AND PEOPLE
http://parksandpeople.org/You'll spend the day with the Parks and People Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting and implementing a wide range of recreational and educational opportunities, creating and sustaining beautiful lively parks, and promoting a healthy natural environment for Baltimore.
Volunteers will be weeding, planting trees, and mulching around several curb bump-outs to create a nice green space. The bump-outs are designed to increase pedestrian safety by making it easier to cross a multi-lane road, create new mini green spaces between the sidewalk and road, and reduce impervious surface for rainwater.
The Baltimore Community ToolBank offers an inventory of tools - shovels, rakes, drills, and so much more helps other non-profit organizations, religious and educational institutions, community groups, etc. increase their impact.
You'll be helping Toolbank keep their huge warehouse organized, maintain tools, and maybe even lend a hand on one of their environmental initiatives.
