The 37th Annual Friends of the Parks Day was a great success! On Earth Day, our Cape Girardeau Parks & Recreation staff and volunteers picked up trash and planted trees at 14 of our 25 parks. Brock Davis discusses the importance of this day and how it helps our city. Thank you to the 300+ volunteers including all of the friends, families, and neighbors, and others! Missouri Dept. of Conservation team was Bashin' Trash along Cape LaCroix Creek Trail, staff worked in City Hall & Iver's Square, and many others volunteered including Red House Interpretive Center, Cape Jaycees, Cape Central High School Beta Club and the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.
