WORLD HABITAT DAY TREE PLANTING VOLUNTEER The purpose of World Habitat Day is to reflect on the basic rights of all to adequate shelter. It is intended to remind the world that we all have the power and responsibility to shape the future of our cities and towns. Habitat for plants and animals is a very important aspect of our ecosystem. Removing non-native plants and replacing them with native species is a way to provide essential food and shelter for the wildlife that call our parks home. Come join us for an afternoon of planting trees in the Vera Hinshaw Park & Preserve. This 10-acre woodland is adjacent to the Monon Trail and north of the 96th Street Trailhead. All ages are welcome!

VOLUNTEER GIVING TUESDAY VIRTUAL! Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 with a simple goal: get people to do something good. Maybe it’s something as small as helping a neighbor with their groceries, or as big as organizing a neighborhood cleanup. Every good deed counts!

AMERICA RECYCLES DAY VOLUNTEER The concepts of reducing, reusing, and recycling are more relevant today than ever before. More and more often we hear about drastic changes in the natural environment caused in part by pollution - and we certainly have a hefty role to play. The United States has the third-largest population of all countries, but it produces the most municipal solid waste in the world: 258 million tons of MSW were generated in 2017 alone. The good news is that since we are such a big part of the problem - we can be an even greater part of the solution. Join us during America Recycles Week to learn about the importance of recycling and partner with us to clean up our parks and greenways! All ages are welcome! Volunteers under the age of 16 must volunteer with a parent/guardian. All Ages • Instructor: CCPR Parks & Natural Resources Staff DATES

The Co-Ed Pickleball Ladder League format is designed to create new matchups each week and have players play with players of similar skill levels. Weekly rankings are based on performance. Players will move up or down the ladder based on wins/losses (not points scored). Each week, players will start in groups of four in the order of ladder ranking. After each game to 11, the winning partnership will move up the ladder and the losing partnership will move down. Partners swap each game. There is a maximum of three wins each league night. After each team’s three games have been played, open play is allowed for the remainder of the time slot when courts are available.
