Friends’ Update: COVID-19

Friends is committed to maintaining a safe environment for all our volunteers, staff, and community members. We know that the recommended COVID-19 precautions will be key in helping our community remain safe and recover well from this complicated season.

Following guidelines to refrain from gatherings, Friends will be postponing all volunteer events and workshops through April 5. We have developed a back-up plan for the April 25 Mayor’s Greening Initiative planting project, which we will share considering the virus’s status on March 31. 

Friends remains committed to bringing our community together around our parks, trees and green spaces. We look forward to planting hundreds of trees and providing families with options for healthy, safe, outdoor activity throughout 2020.

Our team will be working remotely until March 30 and will remain available via phone, email, and video chat to ensure that projects are being advanced.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call us at 616-288-7209 or email at info@friendsofgrparks.org
