Thank you to the many volunteers that came out and helped in Shawnee Park. It was a very chilling day but the sun was shinning bright. Mulching, removing invasive plants, trash pick up and more…it was quite a day and we appreciate your commitment to our Olmsted Parks!

Target Sores
International Leadership Program
Fighting Chance of Louisville
University of Louisville
St. Martha’s Church
