Activities will begin at 10 a.m., and include trimming trees and shrubs, weed removal, and small painting projects, state park officials said.

Participants are encouraged to bring gloves, water and snacks, with tools to be provided by the park.

Volunteers must be 12 years or older.

Volunteers will receive a free service T-shirt while supplies last, and a light lunch.
