Bristol Green Team Returns for Summer 2022 Volunteers Needed for Summer Schedule
Bristol, CT – [June 1, 2022] – The City of Bristol’s Parks, Recreation, Youth and Community Services Department will be resuming its popular Green Team series on Saturday, June 11th at 9:00 am to pick up litter in Page Park.
“Over the past three years, the Bristol Green Team alone has collected over two tons of trash from our parks,” reports Sarah Larson, Deputy Superintendent, “These dedicated volunteers not only help us beautify our park system, but are also critical to conservation efforts throughout Bristol.”
Volunteers will meet at the All Children’s Playground at Page Park to receive their free Bristol Green Team shirt and supplies. Children are welcomed to participate but must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian.
“Volunteers are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather,” according the Community Engagement Coordinator, Erica Benoit. “We provide all of the necessary supplies so you don’t need to bring anything! We’ll have trash pickers, bags, and gloves available.”
- Second Saturday of the Month from 9:00 to 11:00 am
- June 11th – Page Park
- July 9th – Rockwell Park
- August 13th – Veterans Memorial Boulevard
