You Can Now Adopt A Park Or Trail In West Des Moines!
Are you tired of seeing trash in a park or on a trail near your home? Are you ready to do something about it? Now you or your local group can adopt one of West Des Moines' parks or trails and help make a difference in the community!
The Metro Waste Authority has provided all of the signs for the Adopt a Park or Trail program. The West Des Moines Parks and Recreation Department will provide the resources (trash bags, planning help, etc.) to help your group adopt a park or trail. After your group has officially adopted a park or trail, a sign will be placed in the park or by the trail to recognize your sponsoring group and your very appreciated efforts.
What's Involved With Adopting A Park Or Trail?
To see what is required of an adoption group, please review the Adopt a Park or Trail Program and Safety Guidelines.
