Help the Amarillo Zoo Clean Up Thompson Park

Every year the Amarillo Zoo sets aside a day to clean-up the creek and shoreline around the Thompson Park lakes. This is a big endeavor and they need all the help they can get. The more help, the quicker the clean-up goes. If you are looking for a volunteer project to help make one of our city parks more beautiful, then mark your calendars for Clean-Up Day.
