“Your Earth, Your Park, Your Service”

On Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, Hot Springs National Park is hosting a public service event where folks can help in two ways.

  1. Pick up trash around Hot Springs Mountain.
  2. Remove invasive plant species on the Carriage Road and Oertel Trail.

The event begins at 10:00 AM and ends at 1:00 PM. The check-in station is located on Arlington Lawn at 237 Central Avenue. National Park staff will lead attendees from the check-in station to a clean-up location.

All tools will be provided by the National Park Service. Water is available at the check-in station, but it is recommended to bring your own water.

Park Ranger & Volunteer Coordinator Kendra Barat said, “We hope to provide attendees with an opportunity to serve their local national park and the community at large through this event.”

Free parking is available at the Exchange Steet Parking Garage at 128 Exchange Street. 

These events are open to the public, and they would love to attract new faces from the wider community.

For more information, please get in touch with Park Ranger Barat at HOSP_Volunteers@nps.gov or (501) 620-6702.
