Current and potential volunteers are invited to a potluck picnic!
Join us for the City of Berkeley's Adopt-a-Spot Program Volunteer Picnic, a chance for the City to show its appreciation to its dedicated volunteers and for volunteers to meet one another, chat, share ideas, and build community. Adopt-a-Spot volunteers help maintain storm drains and the planted areas of traffic circles.
The Public Works Department will provide refreshments such as sparkling water and juice and attendees are encouraged to bring a dish to share. If you have any food allergies that we should be aware of, please let us know by emailing email@example.com.
This free event will celebrate Adopt-a-Spot volunteers and their commitment to keeping Berkeley safe and beautiful.
