​​Get involved in A2 parks!

Have some spare time or want volunteer hours? Help us keep our parks clean! Find our self-service volunteer stations at two locations: Argo Park Livery and Gallup Park Livery.

All supplies are provided and there is no scheduled time - just be sure to arrive and finish while th​e facility is open! All levels of commitment are welcome.

How it works

  • Sign in! 
    • ​Find the Trash Trailblazer station. It should be located inside or outside the livery - you may need to ask livery staff if you cannot locate it. Sign in at the binder. We do ask for your e-mail address (allows us to input your volunteer hours) and your signature to agree to the waiver. 
    • If you are under 18, you'll need to have a parent or guardian either sign ahead of time or on site.  If you need a waiver ahead of time, e-mail volunteer@a2gov.org to have one sent to you. 
  • Supplies 
    • ​Take a trash picker and a Trash Trailblazers bag. For large groups, pairs can partner and share a picker and bag between them.​
  • Take a Hike!
    • Walk and pick trash from along the path, or the​ banks of the river. Use the Trash Trailblazers bag to collect your findings. We would love it if you could send us a selfie of you on your purpose driven walk! Send to: volunteer@a2gov.org or share on social media and tag us.
  • Sign out
    • Deposit your collection in the nearest trash can, return your supplies to the bucket, and fill out a check-out time on the sign-in sheet. 

It is that easy! Individuals, pairs or small groups - everyone is invited to join the Trash Trailblazers team. 

If you volunteer 3 or more times as a Trash Trailblazer, you can get a free Give 365 volunteer t-shirt! E-mail volunteer@a2gov.org to have one dropped off at the livery of your choice.
