Join Cascades Recovery and the Monroe County Department of Parks, along with many local recreation and environmental groups for “Pick Up the Parks.”  This event is designed to foster stewardship of our 21 parks and 12,000 acres within.  We are all stewards of the great outdoors, so we encourage you to do your part to keep our parks, our waterways, and watersheds clean and green.

  • This great parks stewardship event will again cover *all Monroe County Parks in 2016 with Meet-Up Sites at all County-managed Parks.

  • All supplies are provided by the Parks Department and its partners. You'll even get a free lunch for your service.
