As part of the clean-up effort the Adopt-A-Park program will have kickoff events at many of the city's parks.  Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator Tina Roselle says a great mix of people participate, from scout groups, to businesses, to neighborhood groups.

Roselle thinks volunteers help put the icing on the cake to make the city's parks truly great.  She says volunteer duties range from notifying parks officials when something is amiss, to weeding flowerbeds and pruning trees on a regular basis.

The kick-off events run from 9 until noon.
