Job Descriptions

Must be TCSS Members for Insurance Liability


Tasks vary from week to week depending on weather, inventory of plants and maintenance needs. Confer with team leader on watering priorities and job tasks

  • Watering 
  • Requires moving hoses.  Hoses located in hose bib boxes with additional hoses in hoop house.  Sprinklers available in hoop house

  • Planting 
  • Plant inventory comes from donations, rescues, Native nursery and purchased.  Purchases need to be coordinated with team leader 

  • Maintenance
  • Weeding, trimming.  Tree trimming should be done by volunteers who have training in proper techniques.  

  • Be Safe
  • Snakes and critters live in the park.  We are just visitors.  

  • If a snake is spotted it’s best to go work in another area.  The county will remove snakes but they still stay in the park.  Best to know where they are!

  • Available Tools

    TCSS has purchased some tools for use in the park. Volunteers can be trained on the use of tools prior to using them.  If training desired contact Steve Watts or Linda Heisley.  There are rakes, shovels, loppers, and assorted tools in the tool shed in the hoop house.  All tools to be returned to hoop house before leaving the park.  Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own hand tools and water.

  • Debris

    County maintenance crews will pick up any debris generated from clearing out areas.  Piles should be put next to, but not in paths.  Please separate debris with spines from weeds, limbs etc.

Notify Linda Heisley of any leaks from the hose bibs or any large broken limbs.



The 7 acre park is open to the Public from sunrise to sunset, 7 days a week and is "free of charge".
