Volunteer Opportunities at the Pekin Park District
The Pekin Park District encourages civic groups, Boy and Girl Scouts, Brownies and individuals to make enhancing the park system a volunteer project. Over the years, volunteer efforts have included maintenance of the many hiking trails, building foot bridges, landscaping and planting flower beds. Volunteering at the Park District is a great way for scouts to earn badges or students to earn community service credits. Contact Scott Clausen, Superintendent of Parks, at (309) 346-3810 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. if you or your group is interested in volunteering. We could use your help.
