One person can make a difference, and a group can make a world of difference. Volunteering in the parks can be simple and fun. Gather a group of friends or sign up as an individual. Tasks such as raking, picking up trash, or planting trees make such a difference in our beautiful Monona Parks! Volunteering in the parks is a great way to give back to our wonderful community. Every time you step back in that park you will know you made a difference!

Your role as a volunteer is important and will be highly visible. Our intent is not to harm the geese, but to
encourage them to move from the park area to other areas where they will be less of an impact. When
