The Jefferson County Parks Department needs to complete several essential projects in the parks and needs the public’s volunteer help.

“Volunteers continue to be an essential part of the development and maintenance of our system of parks and trails,” a media release from the county said.

The opportunities to volunteer run through June 18 and include work at Korth Park in Lake Mills, Carnes Park in Fort Atkinson, the Maunesha River in Waterloo, CamRock Bike Park in Cambridge and the Bark River.

The county’s work day in Waterloo is set for May 14.

Among the activities at these locations will be invasive plant removal, tree planting and general cleanup.

Volunteers are asked to bring gloves, closed work shoes, drinking water, sunscreen, safety glasses or sun glasses, and a snack.

Volunteers must also have a signed waiver; those younger than 18 must have a parent sign the waiver.

For more information on volunteer opportunities in the parks or where to meet, contact the parks office at 920-674-7260 or email
