CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Volunteers are asked to clean up Cape Girardeau during the 30th Annual Friends of the Parks Day and the Great Cape Clean-up on April 25.

It's hosted by the City of Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department. The event normally draws a strong 400-500 participants city-wide.

The Parks and Recreation Department hopes that as many groups and individual volunteers participate as possible in this event through beautification projects around the community. 

You can work with a group to beautify some place special, like businesses, schools, or even your own yard! 

Additional projects are available at city parks and properties. Projects will include planting tress and flowers, replacing mulch, trash pick-up and raking leaves.

Parks where tasks will be completed include Capaha Park, Indian Park, Kiwanis Park, May Greene Garden, Washington Park, Dennis Scivally Park, Groves Park, Cape Rock Park, Cape LaCroix Cree, Jaycee Municipal Golf Course, Riverfront Park / downtown, and others.

For those coming out to city parks, registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at Capaha Park. Work projects will begin at 9 a.m. Schnucks will provide hot dogs, chips and soda for participants.

Groups or individuals wanting to volunteer should register by contacting the Parks and Recreation Department Office at 573-339-6340.

Jackson Park Day is also scheduled on April 25. The community clean up day will start at 8 a.m. shelter #1 on Parkview Street in the Main City Park. 

All participants will be offered a t-shirt and lunch served 11 a.m. at no charge. 

This event is an opportunity for the community to help clean and beautify the park. Individuals and service groups are welcome. If interested and cannot attend on April 25, call Jackson Parks & Recreation, (573) 204-8848 to help on other days or for more information.
