If you are a regular visitor to Hendricks Park, you can not help but have noticed the improvements in park conditions over the past few years, as weeds are reduced, blackberry is removed, beds are mulched, plants are pruned, and new rhododendrons and wildflowers are added. These changes are due in part to an enhanced volunteer program, headed by a coordinator position partially funded by the Friends of Hendricks Park. A devoted crew of regular volunteers, out there rain or shine, together with occasional and new volunteers work hard each week, enjoying the comradery (and snacks) that working together brings.

As spring arrives, it is a great time to help at the park, getting it ready for the wonderful season of blooms to come. Tuesday mornings in the Rhododendron Garden and Thursday afternoons in the Wildflower Garden, you’ll find groups of friendly folks ready to welcome you.
