Wilsonville Environmental Resources Keepers (WERK) Day, the City’s annual community park improvement and clean-up event, returns on Saturday, May 12, 8 am-11:30 am.

On WERK Day, volunteers join City employees to complete projects that prepare City parks for the busiest season of the year. Past projects have included painting soccer goals, placing bark chips on trails, rebuilding eroded trails, removing invasive species, and sanding and painting picnic tables.

“The City relies on the efforts of our WERK Day crew to get our parks in shape for summer,” said Brian Stevenson, Parks & Recreation Program Manager. “It is a great activity that allows families, friends and co-workers to have fun doing meaningful work together. We are very appreciative of the volunteers that turn out year after year.”

The 18th annual WERK Day takes place rain or shine, Stevenson said. Participants should dress in long pants, anticipating activities like weeding, raking and shoveling. Work gloves, closed-toe shoes, water bottles, sun screen are recommended.  

Volunteers may check in, get work assignments and enjoy a free omelet breakfast, 8-9 am, at the Wilsonville Community Center, 7965 SW Wilsonville Rd.  Breakfast is provided by the Wilsonville Rotary Club, with coffee courtesy of Starbucks. Wilsonville Lanes and Family Fun Center are pitching in some additional goodies to help the City thank volunteers.

Everyone eight and older is welcome to participate in WERK Day; volunteers under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Groups and individuals can register on the City’s Parks and Recreation website,  www.WilsonvilleParksandRec.com/WERKday.
