The Eugene Day of Service is in its third decade, having been held annually since 2000 (except for 2020, at the height of the pandemic). Last year 218 volunteers completed nearly 400 man-hours of work in 14 locations across the city in one day.

Hundreds of Eugenians are set to descend on several parks around town for the annual Eugene Day of Service, hosted Saturday, June 8 by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in conjunction with the City of Eugene Parks and Open Space department.

Park clean up, native habitat restoration, and tree maintenance projects are planned for three locations: Hendricks Park, Downtown Riverfront Park, and Lincoln School Gardens Park from 9-12.

The Eugene Day of Service is in its third decade, having been held annually since 2000 (except for 2020, at the height of the pandemic). Last year 218 volunteers completed nearly 400 man-hours of work in 14 locations across the city in one day.

The fruitful partnership between the City of Eugene Parks and Open Spaces department and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has saved the City of Eugene thousands of man-hours through the decades, and has helped keep the parks and open spaces clean and healthy.
