The City’s own School Park Preserve, located right behind City Hall, has been adopted by the Sierra Club – Placer Group, which has pledged to maintain the site until this September. Monthly clean-ups take place on the second Saturday of every month from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. This group also assists with City roadside cleanups as needed. If you have a few hours to spare, love to see our special park and roadways well-kept, and would like to join a cleanup, please email Heidi Van Zant at heidi.sierraclub@gmail.com.
