Des Moines, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is placing a call for volunteers to help prepare several Iowa state parks for the summer season. Todd Coffelt, the DNR’s State Parks Bureau chief, says spring cleanup events are scheduled throughout April and May at nearly a dozen parks across the state.
Other work could involve painting and clipping back limbs and plants. The DNR hosted a similar volunteer event at the end of September, as many of the state park campgrounds were closing.
The list of state park volunteer events – with locations, dates, and times – can be found on the Iowa DNR’s website.
