Your students can help care for Surrey's parks this school year!

Our School Park Cleanup program (previously Lend a Hand) is a simple way for your K-7 class to make a difference and build a greener, healthier, and safer community. Commit to regularly cleaning up your local park(s) and we will provide:

  • instructional video
  • clean up equipment (litter pickers, bags and a scale)
  • classroom tracking poster 
  • data log sheet
  • activity resources

At the end of the school year, participating classes will be entered for a chance to win prizes!
