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!

2023-2024 school year

A big thank you to all of this year's participating classes. Together you spent over 1200 volunteer hours cleaning our parks and collected over 230 kg of waste!

Check back in August for details about registering for the 2024-2025 school year.
