Individuals, families and groups of volunteers helped to spruce up the landscaping around the library, removed broom from Hillside Natural Area near the Recycling Center, cared for Cerrito Creek, distributed information about El Cerrito's smoke-free policies to businesses, picked up litter, and helped to plant trees in Arlington Park. Following the work parties, volunteers where honored at an appreciation lunch at the Community Center.
