Grindstone Nature Area

Why are we serving here?

One way ForColumbia strives to love and serve our city is by giving our time and energy to beautify available community areas, such as the Grindstone Nature Area, for everyone to enjoy.

This year, we are again serving in city parks located throughout Columbia that could use more help. When we give our time like this, we actively seek the good of our city in a tangible way.

What can I expect?

ForColumbia 2024 Volunteer T-ShirtsForColumbia volunteers will be serving outside:

  • spreading mulch on the playground;
  • removing honeysuckle from the park’s trails, and;
  • other projects as identified.

What should I bring?

No tools are needed! Columbia Parks and Recreation will provide everything you need.

  • Volunteers should bring work/garden gloves.
  • Come prepared to work outside. If it’s sunny, we encourage you to bring sunscreen and/or a hat.
  • We encourage all volunteers to wear closed-toed shoes.
