Shelby Park Golf Course - Storm Cleanup


Join Friends of Shelby Park and Bottoms and help with small debris pickup at Shelby Golf Course. The March 3 tornado made a direct hit on the Shelby Golf Course. After several months, the larger trees and debris have been removed from the site and what remains is small debris and twigs across many sections of the course. 
 
Due to COVID-19 we will taking the following precautions:
  • We will have volunteers arrive in shifts - each shift will be limited to ten volunteers at one time. Each group will then go out onto the course where they can work while maintaining distancing guidelines. 
  • Fresh gloves will be provided. If you prefer, you are welcome to bring your own. 
  • Volunteers should bring their own water/water bottle. 
  • We will be working to spread volunteers out across the worksite, but volunteers working within 10 feet of others must wear masks. 
This activity will take place outdoors. It is best to dress in long pants and you must wear close-toed shoes.
