Celebrate 916 Day by volunteering at a Sacramento park near you

Volunteers are invited to join the City of Sacramento’s Parks and Community Enrichment Commission for eight events at multiple Sacramento parks to celebrate 916 Day.

Parks commissioners and staff from the City’s Department of Youth, Parks & Community Enrichment are set to host a series of beautification and service events across the city to promote volunteerism and partnerships at parks and green spaces.

“916 Day is a chance to join your neighbors to celebrate our City parks as the cornerstone of our community,” YPCE Director Jackie Beecham said. “The benefits they provide for social interaction, personal growth, a connection to the natural environment and wellness are invaluable.”

Volunteers can register online for any of the events using the City’s ActiveNet system here.
