Blue River Park

Plans for an upgraded Blue River Park, in response to damage that occurred during the Holiday Farm Fire, are now underway. Under consideration are improvements to the entry area - ranging from new signage and a parking area as well as ways to limit vehicle access to the interior grounds. New features could range from a site for a camp host, a covered stage, and a dog park. Details on the plans are available at: shorturl.at/exAEU.

BLUE RIVER The Pure Water Partners (PWP) program is inviting community members to help replant the Blue River Park on Saturday, November 6th. During what's planned as a family-friendly event, volunteers will help plant native trees and shrubs around the park with guidance from Pure Water Partners staff.

During the day people can pick from two shifts. The morning shift will run from 9 a.m. to noon. The afternoon shift is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Because of COVID-19 precautions, crews will be limited to 20 participants per shift. Also, organizers say volunteers will need to use a face covering, regardless of vaccination status, when working within 6 feet of others outside of their household.

On the bonus side, light breakfast fare and lunch will be provided. Lunch will take place from noon to 1 p.m. All volunteers are welcome and encouraged to join!

No experience is necessary. We will provide all of the tools needed for planting.
