The Evanston Nouveau Rotary Club has adopted Harbert-Payne Park, and we're committed to help maintain these 13.2 beautiful acres through Clean-up and Habitat Days!
Park Clean-ups are scheduled one Saturday each month from April through November, and open to all-ages. The club will provide trash bags, hand sanitizer, a first aid kit, and we have a few adult-sized gardening gloves available first come/first serve. If you have your own, bring those! Please keep an eye on the weather and dress accordingly. We'll also encourage you to bring your own face mask, water bottle/water, sunscreen/hat, trash pickers or other tools. All participants will need to complete participation waivers for the season.
Habitat days are scheduled for three Sundays between June and October. Depending on the needs of the day, volunteering might include watering, mulching, removing invasive plants, and planting - we'll let you know what to expect closer to the date. We ask that you keep an eye on the weather and dress accordingly. We'll encourage you to bring your own face mask, water bottle/water, sunscreen/hat, small gardening tools, and knee pads/rests. All participants will need to complete a participation waiver for the season.
Make new friends; get involved in your community; make a positive impact!
