Volunteers Needed at Wolf Run Park

Attention 4Hers! The Knox County Bark Park located at Wolf Run Park on Yauger Road is looking for some volunteers this spring/summer. This might be a great community service project for those clubs looking for one. We need general maintenance such as pulling weeds and helping with the agility equipment. We would like to incorporate some “dog” related fun education programs in the park as well. If you are interested in our volunteer/education program please contact the Knox County Park District at 740-392-7275.
