Not all heroes wear capes — sometimes they wear garden gloves.
Anybody can nominate a volunteer (or themselves). The main criteria:
- The nominee should “demonstrate exceptional stewardship” of parks and/or recreation
- They should have devoted a significant time commitment to volunteer work
- They must show support of the department’s goals of social justice and its Thriving Environment Initiative
Got someone in mind who checks the boxes? Go ahead and get their name in by Friday, Oct. 20.
And if all this community kudos talk has you inspired, be sure to peruse our list of volunteer opportunities in Seattle. Giving is its own reward, too.
